RTA ready for crush of Tribe fans eager for postseason play

Progressive Field, Cleveland Progressive Field, Cleveland

The Indians are ready for their first post-season game since 2007, and so is RTA.

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority has supplied service to all 81 Tribe home games this season, and officials said that service will continue in the post-season.

A wild-card playoff game against Tampa Bay begins at 8:07 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, at Progressive Field, before a sell-out crowd of 43,345 fans eager for a win.

RTA offers free parking at many Rapid Stations. The lots may still be filled with downtown commuters. Obey all parking signs.

RTA operates rush-hour level service until 6 p.m. After that, customer loads will be closely monitored and increased as needed.

RTA has a long-standing policy that Rapid service continues for at least 90 minutes after an event ends.

If the game goes into extra innings and ends at 2 a.m., there will be service from Tower City until at least 2:45 p.m., or as long as needed to clear the platforms.

Supervisors at Tower City will monitor the customer flow, and increase service levels as needed.
