Cincinnati Bell Connector

Great news! The Cincinnati Bell Connector will be free to ride on Saturdays during the holiday season. Hop on and off without paying for fare on November 30, December 7, December 14, and December 21. The free streetcar rides are made possible thanks to a donation from Downtown Cincinnati Inc. and the Cincinnati Center City Development Corp. (3CDC).
