Types of Transportation Available to Campus
Cleveland Hopkins Airport is the closest to the university. To get to the campus, take the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) Rapid Transit from the airport terminal to University Circle; the ride takes approximately 40 minutes and is very cheap. Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited provides service to Cleveland via Toledo, Erie, and Buffalo, connecting from those cities to many other locations throughout the country. Greyhound buses also provide service to Cleveland. The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) offers extensive and economical bus and rail service throughout the metropolitan area.

A particular favorite is Glidden House (1901 Ford Dr.; 216-231-8900; www.gliddenhouse.com), a large, Gothic-style bed and breakfast within walking distance of campus.
