Airport

Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport Station

is a station all Clevelandites can be proud of. The station opened in 1968 making Cleveland the first North American City to have a direct rail connection to its airport. Making the connection is very easy with no long walks and passageways, the station is underground (the only true underground station, Tower City is at Street level but a building has been built on top of it), located just off the baggage claim level, after paying your fare a very short (~100 foot) passageway leads you up to the narrow island platform. The fact the station serves the airport is apparent throughout the station. Mosaics on the track walls are of runways with model plains attached to them, there are also mosaics of airplanes on the platform floor.
