A second meeting will be held Monday for the public to express concerns and pose questions about proposed service times and fare cost for Cincinnati's streetcar project.

The 11 a.m. session will take place at the Over-the-Rhine Community Center, 1715 Republic St.

The proposed service plan for the streetcar, which is expected to open in September 2016, includes several facets. Organizers say the street car would operate from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Sundays, then from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. 

On holidays, the streetcar would run 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. 

Frequency for the cars would be every 12 minutes weekdays, every 15 minutes after 9 p.m., and every 15 minutes weekends.

Proposed fare costs include $1 for a two-hour pass, $.50 for a half fare pass, and $2 for a day pass. Several existing Metro passes would also be accepted.
