Cincinnati mayor-elect to review streetcar alternative

CINCINNATI — Mayor-elect John Cranley will study the costs and benefits of Hop On Cincinnati, a downtown trolley bus system, as a potentially more affordable alternative to a planned streetcar system during his first 100 days in office.  

The 3.6-mile streetcar route is expected to cost $133 million by the time it’s completed in September 2016. Hop On Cincinnati organizers estimate it will cost $10.7 million to buy 16 trolley buses and launch five routes and another $4.4 million to operate each year, nearly the same as the streetcar is projected to cost.
