The first vehicle for Cinncinati's Streetcar project was delivered by flatbed tractor-trailer to the maintenance and operations Facility on Friday, Oct. 30.

The streetcar system, which is scheduled to begin passenger service in September 2016, consists of a 3.6-mile loop extending from The Banks, through Downtown and north to Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine.

The project is touted as a modern rail-transit system intended to stimulate development, expand transportation options, and enhance livability by connecting key communities in and around the center city.
