With less waiting, extended hours and shorter trip times along with Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), we can ensure Greater Cincinnati has a modern, efficient transit system that drives the region forward while attracting jobs and talent to our communities.
To achieve this, Metro is considering a Hamilton County Sales Tax for the November 2018 ballot at a level between .5% and 1.0%.
Improved connections with crosstown routes and potential BRT lines.
Service every 15 minutes or better on major routes.
24-hour service on six major corridors.
Real-time signs, improved apps, more shelters, Wi-Fi and charging ports.
Fixed guideway Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) would provide a new, faster transportation option, operating in "bus only" lanes along the Montgomery, Hamilton, Reading and Glenway corridors for at least 50% of the route with features that include:
• 50% of route "bus only" lanes
• Fewer stops & designated shelters
• Traffic signal priority
• 12-to-15 minute frequency
• Off-board fare payment
• Larger vehicles
• More amenities: comfortable seats, Wi-Fi, real-time screens
Metro is currently funded by 3/10 of a penny of the city's earnings tax, however the effects of the 2008 financial crisis, disinvestment and the rising cost of maintaining an aging fleet have put a strain on Metro’s service. At the same time, the region has seen a growth in jobs outside the urban core, jobs that have been difficult for Metro to serve. To provide improved access to the places riders need to be, and to make our region competitive for jobs and talent, we must reinvent Metro.Read More
With improved funding Metro can bring to life its Reinventing Metro Plan offering the Greater Cincinnati region bold, new transit innovations that better connects our community to jobs, school, healthcare and play. To accomplish this, the SORTA Board is considering placing a Hamilton County sales tax levy of between 0.5 percent and 1 percent on the November 2018 ballot that would ensure Metro is able to provide the level of service our community needs. Take a look at our plan to bring bold, new transit innovations to Cincinnati and show us your support.Read more
