Leave your car at home and forget about Uber for one second, because there's a wildly easy way to get to and from Scene
's Taste of Summer
event this weekend.
The RTA's Waterfront Line
, which provides the fastest trip to the Flats East Bank and which typically runs near-empty trains, will be running every 15 minutes this weekend. The less than 3-minute ride takes travelers from the Tower City Station to all the restaurants, gathering places, and amenities the Flats East Bank has to offer. And, of course, Scene's free three-day event.
Also new down in the Flats this Memorial Day Weekend: the launch of the new water-taxi service
. The canopied taxis will run along the Cuyahoga River at the Main Avenue Bridge.
The Cleveland Metroparks will operate the taxis, running until 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and until 7 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays. A $2 admission gives a rider unlimited trips on the 26-foot-long taxi for the day. Each taxi can carry 18 passengers and four bikes.
The Taste of Summer three-day event features food, local music, craft cocktails, beer, local vendors, and many games and activities for guests of all ages. Hours for the event are 4 p.m. - 10 p.m. this Friday and 12 p.m. - 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. See you there!
