Newport may jump on streetcar bandwagon

NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - The city of Newport could be jumping on the streetcar bandwagon.

The Newport City Commission passed a resolution Monday night supporting Cincinnati's streetcar plan.

City leaders hope the plan eventually includes a route across the Ohio River. Covington is expected to vote at a meeting on Tuesday.

City Mayor Mark Mallory says a streetcar system would be good for economic development.
