"This TIGER III grant was awarded on a competitive basis and shows that the Cincinnati Streetcar is one of the best transportation projects in the country for generating economic development and putting Cincinnatians back to work," blog founder at CincyStreetcar writes.

CincyStreetcar also writes that "while the current plan for the streetcar will be expanded once funds become available, the initial segment of the Streetcar will use five vehicles. When the system eventually extends to the Banks, the University of Cincinnati and hospitals in Uptown, more vehicles will be needed."
