Cincinnati chooses Vine Street route for street car

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - After a comprehensive analysis, the city of Cincinnati announced Wednesday that the Vine Street alternative is the route the streetcar will take to get to the uptown Cincinnati area.

The city says it's a less expensive route, offers fewer challenges to build, and best positions the streetcar for future expansion.

The Vine Street route also connects the streetcar to University Plaza, Kroger, the Short Vine entertainment district and Christ Hospital.
