Cincinnati Streetcar.

It feels like it’s been forever in the making. There were all the politics and then the construction, awaiting the arrival of the cars, then putting them on the rails and driving around for months on end without any passengers. But starting on September 9th, you’ll actually be able to ride the Cincinnati Streetcar, ahem… Cincinnati Bell Connector around downtown and Over-the-Rhine. This morning Deskey got an informative crash-course in Streetcar safety from the City of Cincinnati…

They also showed a bunch of super cute videos. I’m not even going to lie, I was initially very skeptical about the whole idea of the Streetcar. I thought it was an awful lot of money for a route that people could very easily bike or walk. But like they say, if you can’t beat them, join ’em. I’m excited to ride the Streetcar because it expands my lunch options exponentially. It’ll be pretty cool to be able to hop on one of these guys to ride up to Findlay Market, Taft’s Ale House or down to The Banks to get lunch…

And who knows maybe some day before we’re old and grey, the Cincinnati Streetcar
CB Connector will connect Northside and downtown. But I’m not holding my breath. πŸ™‚
