CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Riders can take the Cincinnati Bell Connector for free on Saturdays throughout the holiday season.

Streetcar officials say rides will be free of charge from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 30, Dec. 7, Dec. 14 and Dec. 21.

The free-ride days coincide with various downtown events, including an event that takes place every Saturday where a “Santa” repels off a downtown building, the Winter Market at Fountain Square and Santa visits at Carew Tower.

There are 18 stations along the 3.6-mile loop where riders can board the streetcar, including locations at Fountain Square, The Banks, Washington Park, and Findlay Market.
