Reminder as you’re traveling around the CWE this weekend, that transportation is now easier thanks to the Euclid Shuffle! If it’s too cold for you to walk, or you parked far away, you don’t need to let that stop you from exploring the neighborhood. You can take a free ride along Euclid Ave. from Forest Park Ave. to Washington Ave. You can call or text the shuttle for a ride. Hop aboard!
