Riding Cleveland's public transportation is a great way to get around town. Each semester, full-time students receive a RTA bus pass that covers both the RTA bus lines and rapid transit. While it is a great way to get around, it will take some planning.
Where do I pick up my bus pass?
Bus passes are distributed each semester from the Student Life and Housing office in the JMC. You will be asked to sign that you have received your pass.
What happens if I lose my bus pass?
Please see Matthew Smith, Director of Student Life and Housing, and he will give you a form that you will have to take to Crawford Hall to get a new one printed. If you happen to lose your pass, it will cost $25 to replace. You may use CaseCash to pay for the new bus pass.
What does the bus pass look like?
The pass looks like a thinner version of your student ID. It has your name and picture on it.

Student parking is located in assigned parking lots in the University Circle area. Parking lots require an access card and parking hang tag, which can be purchased through the Business Office and issued by the Facilities Office. Purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee availability of a parking space; parking is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Any car without a current hangtag is subject to ticketing and/or tow at the owner’s expense.
The hangtag should be hung on the rear view mirror and can be transferred from one car to another should the need arise. Anyone using an Institute parking lot is subject to the college’s parking policies issued at the time of permit pick-up.
Call University Circle Inc. Parking and Transportation at 216.791.6226.
Assistance can be provided for battery boosts, flat tire inflation, keys locked in car, and gasoline at cost.
