Two years after its initial launch the website www.cincystreetcar.com has been re-launched with a new focus and design. The new site features expanded multi-media content, links to the various studies on Cincinnati Streetcar, updated route maps, and a gallery of supporters.
“We wanted to broaden the scope of the site,” says Brad Thomas, the founder of cincystreetcar.com. “Initially this project began as an initiative of the Mayor’s Young Professional Kitchen Cabinet, but we want to make clear that the streetcar benefits all the residents of Cincinnati, everyone from young families to the elderly.” Charles Schaser, a Price Hill resident who has been involved in the streetcar effort agrees streetcars are an important part of the City’s future. “Around the country, streetcars are proven tools of economic development. Where the tracks go, new development follows,” Schaser says.
The new site features links to the numerous studies that have been conducted on the streetcar and details the benefits of investing in the Cincinnati Streetcar. “Tom Luken, one of the leaders of the Anti-Passenger Rail Charter Amendment, speaking to the Enquirer about streetcar advocates said ‘They’ve got an answer for everything,’” says Thomas, “He’s right, the streetcar has been thoroughly studied and you can find the answers at Cincystreetcar.com.”
Cincystreetcar.com would like to thank all those who have donated their time and resources to the streetcar campaign, especially The Hodges Law Group and Mr. & Mrs. Charles Prince & Family for providing financial and technical support. Visit the updated site here.
