University CircleRapid Transit Station - Greater RTA Cleveland
The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) is soliciting public artists for submission of public art for the University Circle Rapid Transit Station. The station is one of the top four major transit hubs within the GCRTA public transit network. It serves 6-8 busy bus routes, is close to the HealthLine Bus Rapid Transit service, and is a major station on the RTA's Red Line running from
East Clevelandto . Given this amount of activity, the station is composed of several different elements all designed with a common architectural theme. The station is meant to be an iconic gateway to the Region, the City of Cleveland Hopkins Airport Cleveland, , and into Cleveland Heights University Circle. Its proximity to historic Rockefeller and Ambler Park, and a major urban arterial carrying 30,000 cars per day, combine to create a unique setting for this station. Case Western Reserve University
