STREETCAR STATIONS IMPROVED FOR EASE OF USE FOR RIDERS
Repairs completed with upgrades to stations and TVMs.
With warm weather finally here, it’s anticipated that many people will be riding the Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcars to take advantage of all the great activities downtown, from The Banks to OTR.
Repairs to streetcar stations and ticket vending machines were completed last month, ensuring platforms and ticket vending machines are fully functional and ready for spring and summertime ridership.
The repairs, which involved minor concrete work, as well as weatherproofing and electrical connection improvements of the ticket vending machines, were completed Feb. 12 to March 8 on time and with minimal disruption to service by the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority and the City of Cincinnati, along with its contractors.
Ticket vending machines accept credit cards, cash and Metro stored value cards.
Customers may also purchase their fare using the free Cincy EZRide app, which allows riders to purchase passes on their smartphone from anywhere – day or night, at home or on the way to the station.
