Downtown Cincinnati Incorporated commissioned a study to count the number of pedestrians walking around downtown at lunch time. This study found 40,507 pedestrians along the streetcar line every day from 11:00am to 2:00pm and another 23,173 pedestrians one block away on Vine St during the same period. The study was conducted in October and November. Due to the cold weather when the study was conducted, the summer numbers are likely higher.
In Downtown, Cincinnati’s largest employment center, there are tens of thousands of people walking around that would be able to take the streetcar for lunchtime trips. Additionally the streetcar will serve the 62,163 Cincinnatians who live in the neighborhoods along the line, the nearly 40,000 students at the University of Cincinnati and the tens of thousands who work in Uptown, the region’s second largest employment center, ensuring plenty of riders for the streetcar throughout the day.
