Cleveland's public transport system is currently being improved with the implementation of the Euclid Corridor Transportation Project that includes seven miles (11km) of bus lanes on arterial streets. This should be operational by the end of 2008. Electric trolley buses serve downtown and buses run to the suburbs. Most sights can be reached on foot or light rail. A car is not necessary downtown, but is more convenient for wider exploration of the city. To hire a car, drivers must be 21 years old (some require a 25-year minimum), and must have a valid driver's license and sometimes an international driving permit as well. A passport is required for non-US residents. Taxis are expensive and usually take a while once summoned.
