Anyone visiting Cleveland, Ohio, should take the Waterfront Line (extension of Blue and Green lines) to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
An extension of the old Shaker Heights Rapid Transit, the Waterfront line offers an excellent view of the Cleveland Browns football stadium. Additionally, it provides access to Cleveland's Great Lakes Science Center and IMAX Theater as well as the stadium and Hall of Fame.
The Rapid Transit is composed of 3 rail lines: the Red Line that extends from the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, located to the southwest of the city, through the central city (Terminal Tower with connections to the other rail lines) to its eastern terminus (Windermere). The Blue and Green extend from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame through the central city (Terminal Tower) to Shaker Heights where lakes and parks can be found for hiking.

Bummer! A few years ago, my wife and I did a cross-country motorhome trip. In St. Louis, I rode from the RV park to downtown, where a rock band was performing. After their set, I was chatting with the bass player, who highly recommended the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. This was after some of my musician friends here in the LA area advised me to visit. When real musicians take a place seriously, I pay attention. We parked the RV out at the Green Rd. terminal of the Shaker Heights Green line and I rode in to the Hall. It was a fascinating visit, especially since some of the exhibits honored performers I had seen "live" years ago. It looks like if the new schedule change is adopted, combining my interests of trains and music will no longer be possible on weekdays. (I haven't checked, but there may be a bus on E. 9th)
In addition to the 3 rail routes, recently, Cleveland completed it's "Healthline" bus rapid transit project AKA "Euclid Corridor Transportation Project" & "Dual Hub Transportation Project." It runs eastward on Euclid Avenue from Cleveland's Terminal Tower at Public Square - past the Cleveland Clinic, Art Museum, Case Western Reserve University and continues to the Red Line's Windermere Station.
This line employs an articulated bus --
