Temporary Transit Hub

RTA is committed to the safety of our operators and riders. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, RTA has reduced services on all  buses, streetcars, and ferries to help mitigate the community spread of COVID-19. Please continue to ride public transit for essential travel only and practice social distancing when riding. For more information on RTA's response to COVID-19, click here.


Due to the Hard Rock Hotel collapse and exclusion zone, RTA has relocated its central transit hub to Duncan Plaza at 343 Loyola Ave. The RTA is not servicing bus stops located at Elk Pl. and Canal St.: riders should go to Duncan Plaza to catch buses normally serviced at Elk Pl. and Canal St. To see impacts to streetcar service click here.

Additionally, Duncan Plaza has been separated into three (3) stops. Each bus line going to Duncan Plaza will use one of the stops for boarding and exiting the bus.
