CINCINNATI – The Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar will operate as a fare-free transit service starting November 1, 2020. Individuals seeking to comment on the fare change can do so during the public comment session of Major Projects and Smart Government Council Committee, Tuesday, October 27, 2020, at 1pm.
