Findlay Market, Transit

Posted on Updated on

From Casey Coston’s article in Soapbox on Findlay Market:

It is important to note that the Market is not just for weekends, as most of the vendors are open during the week, and there is also a Tuesday farmer’s market.  One of the key complaints voiced by some vendors is about getting more foot traffic during the week, a challenging prospect at best or at least until the streetcar rolls into town.

Read the rest here.

Note: Mr. Coston incorrectly identifies Phase 1 of the streetcar terminating in Over-the-Rhine, in reality the first phase of the streetcar will run all the way to Uptown and connect the University of Cincinnati with Downtown and the Rivefront.

From Laura’s Carbon Footprint:

If you were placing bets, would you bet on Cincy? Not as an insider who knows the game, but as a casual gambler who looks at the odds and the flashy silks, or who maybe always picks the gray horse.

I, as an optimist and an insider, am betting on Cincy. I am hopeful that the Cincinnati Streetcar will happen as planned. I believe the Cincinnati bicycling community is on the right track making Cincinnati streets safer for everyone. I can’t wait for the Ohio River Trail to be complete. And, I love – and ride – Metro.

Some would argue that Cincinnati is great as it is, and I would agree. But, as someone who’s very insightful told me the other day, “it’s not where we are right now that bothers me; it’s where we’re going.”

    yeah yeah….you get the drift.

    Actually, I always, conceptually at least, viewed the Connector as separate from Phase I, i.e. Phase I route; Connector up to Clifton; and Phase II route.

    Nevertheless, I deeply regret and pain and/or personal suffering my comments may have caused.

    carry on.
