As part of the application for federal funding, a Economics Analysis of the Cincinnati Streetcar was conducted by HDR Decision Economics. The full report can be accessed here.
Job creation was one of the economic impacts of the streetcar that was studied in this report. According to the report the Cincinnati Streetcar “is expected to generate 2,157 job-years during the development phase.”
In a time of chronically high unemployment, building the Cincinnati Streetcar will help put workers in hard-hit industries like construction back to work. And the jobs created by building the Cincinnati Streetcar will employ local residents by utilizing Cincinnati based companies like Megen Construction, Jostin Concrete Construction and Brewster Pumping.
Building the streetcar will put Cincinnatians back to work and create an asset that will benefit the future generations that will call this City home. Create Jobs–Build the Streetcar.
