Laketran and Cleveland RTA Transfers
Laketran and GCRTA have a reciprocal transfer agreement in place to assist riders
in having regional access to high quality public transportation services. In 2000
and in 2005, Laketran was named the Best Small System in America by the American
Public Transportation Association. In 2007, GCRTA received this honor for the Best
Large System in America. Together, we strive to provide regional transportation
services that are safe, affordable, and reliable.
In order to facilitate travel between Lake and Cuyahoga Counties, riders may transfer
from one system to the other at three county-line points:
- Shoregate Shopping Center, Laketran Routes 3 and 6 connect with GCRTA #30/39/39F. GCRTA #30 takes you to Louis Stokes-Windermere via E. 140. GCRTA #39/39F travels to Public Square via Lakeshore Blvd.
- At East 276th in Euclid, Laketran Route 2 connects with GCRTA #28 to Windermere
- At the Shops of Willoughby Hills, just west of Giant Eagle, Laketran Route 6 connects
to GCRTA #94
Commuters going to University Circle or other Cleveland destinations may transfer
once from any Laketran commuter bus to GCRTA’s new HealthLine, or rapid lines at
You must always pay the fare on the first system you board. A transfer is only valid
for one ride on the adjoining system.
Traveling westbound from Lake County, you must ask your Laketran driver for a transfer
Traveling eastbound into Lake County, you must ask your RTA driver for a
non-valid fare receipt that serves as a transfer.
