SORTA, Transdev Partner for Streetcar Operation in Cincinnati

The Board of Trustees of the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority, operator of Cincinnati Metro, joined Transdev Services July 6 in a $38 million contract agreement regarding operations and maintenance for Cincinnati’s new streetcar service, scheduled to open in September 2016. Transdev will manage day-to-day operations, be accountable for safety and maintain vehicles and most streetcar infrastructure. Transdev expects to create approximately 26 new jobs. The agreement includes a startup period and a five-year base contract, along with five one-year optional extensions. The streetcar will feature 18 stops on a 3.6-mile loop linking major employment centers and riverfront destinations through the downtown business district and to the historic Over the Rhine neighborhood. It will also connect to Metro bus service. From left: SORTA Board Chair Jason Dunn and Vice Chair Ken Reed; Transdev’s John Claflin, who will serve as general manager of the streetcar; Mike Setzer and Dick Alexander; and Cincinnati Metro Executive Vice President Darryl Haley and Chief Executive Officer & General Manager Dwight Ferrell.
