BREAKING: SORTA awards streetcar contract to Transdev

The contract to operate Cincinnati's streetcar was awarded to Transdev Monday.

The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority, or SORTA, board approved the turnkey contract to the company that operates rail and transit services across the country, including the New Orleans streetcar.
Under the contract, Transdev would provide the streetcar management, operations and maintenance personnel. The company would bring in all its own employees and begin work later this month.
