Transportation


By air, land and sea, Cincinnatians are connected to the world through CVG International airport, and new daily flights from Lunken Airport on the east side. METRO and TANK provide the wheeled service that connects the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region together, but it's a long anticipated ground-breaking for a streetcar route that will bridge the Banks development, downtown, Over-the-Rhine, and Uptown that has Cincinnatians really talking public transport. Non-motorized transportation is making waves too, with a bicycle master plan that includes sharrows and cycling racks in neighborhoods.
