Mark your calendar for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2011, and join us when Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory, City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr., and Metro’s CEO and General Manager Terry Garcia Crews will unveil the first Streetcar station sign in front of 801 Main St.

Supporters of the Streetcar system are welcome to attend this unveiling. These are temporary markers so that people can begin to understand the route and where the Streetcar will take them when it is built.

Throughout the rest of the day, more stations will continue to be showcased. Within the week, each station will have a colorful, visible sign so that everyone can see where they’ll be able to board the Streetcar. Each sign will be colored in Streetcar green and include a map showing the individual stations along the Streetcar route.
