Transportation in Cleveland

carCleveland is the urban center of Northeast Ohio and is situated on the southern shore of Lake Erie. Getting around the city is relatively simple, because the street layout is based on a grid pattern. Guests with the knowledge and understanding that most north-south streets are numbered can easily navigate the city to locate all their favorite attractions.

During your stay there are several transportation outlets to make getting around the city easy and trouble-free. The staff of the Glidden House Hotel is happy to help you make your transportation plans in advance saving your valuable time for sight-seeing and getting to where you need or want to be once you arrive.  Also, you will find this University Circle transportation map extremely useful!

Do you want to transport yourself? Then renting a car may be your best consideration.

Do you prefer to utilize Cleveland’s public transportation? Then you’ll find the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) buses and rapid trains will get you where you’re going without the stress and worry of driving yourself.

Or you can use the CWRU Shuttle Service, a fixed route, fixed stop transportation option which is available to all CWRU students, faculty, and staff as well as  University Circle and Hospitals employees and patrons.  There are different shuttle buses which operate within the geographical areas and surround CWRU, University Hospitals and University Circle. This service is also available to service members of our community.  Six routes run concurrently to link all corners of the campus with most destinations in between.
