Cincinnati Streetcar to Receive $15 Million in State Funding

Posted on

The Cincinnati Streetcar was selected by the State of Ohio’s Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) to receive $15 million in funding to advance the project.

TRAC was created as a way to objectively evaluate projects across all modes of transportation.  Each project, whether it is road, transit, aviation or freight, is scored using criteria that can be applied equally across all modes of transportation.

Out of a possible 100 points, the Cincinnati Streetcar scored an 84–the single highest scoring project in the State of Ohio.  Mayor Mark Mallory said of the award:

“We are confident that having the State as a partner in the project will be helpful in obtaining federal funding in the upcoming months.   We should all thank Governor Strickland for becoming a partner on this project.  He clearly understands the transformational effect that the streetcar will have on Cincinnati.”

    I’ve seen the haters on the Enquirer website, I was expecting some here.

    I can’t wait, the streetcar and the banks should all come online at about the same time, right?
