On Aug. 15, 40 members participated in All Aboard Ohio’s 2015 Summer Meeting & Family Outing, which was a guided tour of Cleveland’s 37-mile rail transit system, including several transit-oriented developments (TOD). Thanks again to the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) for sponsoring this tour which attracted visitors from around Ohio.
Attendees were provided with a packet which included an GCRTA all-day pass and a presentation of selected real estate developments and transit projects (10mb download) along the tour. The tour started at All Aboard Ohio’s office at Tower City Center (former Cleveland Union Terminal), then rode the Waterfront Line round trip, Blue Line to Warrensville and return west to East 55th, Red Line east to the new Little Italy station, and west to Hopkins International Airport. The last part included a race between the Red Line train and the HealthLine BRT bus to Tower City, which the train easily won (the bus had 70 blocks to go as the train arrived Tower City!). Attendees returned from the airport on the Red Line to Tower City after a busy fun day.
Thanks for riding with All Aboard Ohio!
