Laketran announces New Sports Express service to Cleveland Browns Stadium for Home Games

Laketran is thrilled to announce the launch of its new Sports Express bus service, providing convenient transportation to all 2024 Cleveland Browns home games, including preseason competition. The service kicks off on Saturday August 10, when the Browns face off against the Green Bay Packers.

This season, Laketran STS buses are offering a round trip ticket for just $25 per person, making it easier for fans to catch a ride to Cleveland. Buses will depart Lake County from the Mentor Park-n-Ride, located at 8650 Market Street in Mentor, two hours before game time. The downtown Cleveland drop-off point is at the northeast corner of St. Clair St. and E. 9th St., near the Galleria. After the game, buses will leave 45 minutes following the final whistle, providing a hassle-free journey home.

“We’re very excited to bring back Sports Express service to our residents,” shared Laketran board president Brian Falkowski. “Laketran ran a similar service 20 years ago, and we still get calls each year about it. We hope that both longtime fans and new riders will join us onboard to get to the game.”

The Sports Express service is limited to 134 tickets per game, so fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to secure their seat. Given the high demand and limited availability, tickets are expected to sell quickly.

Laketran previously operated a similar Sports Express service from 1985 to 2006, catering to fans of both the Cleveland Browns and today’s Cleveland Guardians.

“We decided to bring the service back starting with the Browns because there’s just 10 home games,” explained Laketran CEO Ben Capelle. “If the ticket sales go well, we may look into starting service to the Guardians in the spring.”

“Lake County loves our Cleveland Browns, and the Sports Express from Laketran is the new, best way to see the big games downtown,” said Commissioner Plecnik. “See you on the bus!”

“As Commissioner, I’m delighted to report that we’re keeping our promise to our community by introducing new amenities that enhance daily commutes. Laketran’s Sports Express bus service is a game-changer, providing seamless transportation to every 2024 Cleveland Browns home game, including preseason competition, starting August 10th,” said Commissioner Richard J. Regovich.

“The return of Sports Express is a testament to Laketran’s dedication to meeting the transportation needs of our community. I am thrilled to see this service available once again, and I encourage all fans to take advantage of this convenient and affordable way to get to the game,” said Commissioner John R. Hamercheck.
