It’s a sign.

They’ve just made the right lane on Main Street downtown a Bus Only lane during the morning and evening rush hours. Here’s the brand new Bus Only sign at the stop where I wait for the Metro 17 bus on Main Street between Eighth and Ninth Streets…

Officials saidย about 635 Metro buses travel on Main Street between Fifth and Central each weekday. Of those, 90 use the far-right lane to pick up passengers at stops along Main during afternoon rush hour from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

This lane is the first of its kind in Cincinnati.

It’s nice to see the buses getting some preferential treatment for a change. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸšŒโค๏ธ

Commemorative Streetcar Tokens.

The Cincinnati Streetcar‘s grand opening weekendย is set forย September 9th through 11th. This afternnon, I picked up a couple of the super-special, limited-edition 2016 Commemorative Streetcar Tokens from The Bus Stop in the Mercantile Center…

Theย tokens are good for unlimited rides for the first week of revenue service. But I think these tokens will be staying in their packaging. These are going to be great souvenirs of the dawn of the Cincinnati Streetcar era. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Bus Stop.

I made my way over to the arcade in Mercantile Center this afternoon…

I was going to The Bus Stop. Myย 30-day rolling pass expires on Sunday. So I needed to get a new pass…

This month I’m going to tryย Stored-Value Cards instead of the 30-day rolling pass since Genifer and I have been riding to work together a few times a week. She drops me off downtown and then continues on her way to Covington and beyond…

I love riding the bus. ๐Ÿ™‚
