GCRTA wins grant to build new East 79th Rapid stop

A key to transforming an area south of the Opportunity Corridor Boulevard
 into a vibrant neighborhood is the replacement of a station on the Greater
Cleveland Regional Transit Authority’s light-rail Blue/Green line. This
is a vision for that area which has been supported by civic leaders in-
cluding the Cleveland Planning Commission (City Architecture).

Early last year, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) opened a new station at East 79th Street on its Airport-Windermere rail transit Red Line. Late next year, and less than 2,000 feet south, the transit agency could start construction on a new East 79th station on its downtown-Shaker Heights rail transit Blue/Green Lines. Both stations are seen as a key strategy to improve access for everyone to reach job sites being added along the new Opportunity Corridor Boulevard.
