Groundbreaking Friday for the West Shore Express

Posted: Updated:

Clifton Boulevard will soon have a new service called the West Shore Express.

The West Shore Express will operate every 10 minutes during rush hour along Clifton Boulevard in Lakewood.

The busses will travel in dedicated bus lanes.

Through bus stop consolidation, as well as adjusting traffic signals and patterns, the commute for RTA customers will be quicker, in addition to making it a smoother commute for other motorists.

Stations will be constructed with real-time travel information through NextConnect, and have emergency call boxes. 

The rules for parking along Clifton Boulevard will remain the same, as the dedicated bus lanes will only be used during morning and afternoon rush hours, when parking is not currently allowed.

The new 'west shore express' will:

•replace the 55 and 55f bus routes.

•provide more capacity.

•deliver a faster trip 

•provide a more first-class experience throughout the four-mile corridor of Clifton Boulevard in Cleveland and Lakewood.

•more efficiently link Lakewood, Bay Village, Rocky River and Westlake to Downtown.
