The Cultural Loop // Erie Arts & Culture

Cultural Loop - Erie Arts & Culture

The Cultural Loop is a free trolley service that operates every 15 minutes on Saturday evenings from 5:00pm to midnight, along a dedicated route set apart from EMTA's regularly scheduled lines. The service provides door to door transportation to and from great businesses and arts, cultural and sporting events in downtown Erie. Park and ride from the Erie Intermodal Transportation Center or Liberty Park.  If you're visiting the Erie area, the Cultural Loop picks up at the Sheraton Bayfront Hotel! The route services French Street from the Bayfront to 14th, and makes stops directly in front of venues such as the Erie Insurance Arena, Warner Theatre, Erie Playhouse,  Renaissance Centre (where Dramashop and Radius Gallery are located), and the Performing Artists Collective Alliance (PACA).

A partnership between EMTA, the Erie Downtown Partnership, Erie Events, and Erie Arts & Culture, the Cultural Loop offers tourists, boaters, and residents a convenient way to participate in extraordinary experiences right here in downtown Erie! Learn more about the partnership here
