Light Rail and Extensive Bike Trails in Cincinnati?

Could it be? Could we finally be getting progressive in our approach to transportation in this fine region? I know there are hurdles and environmental concerns in the plan, that I will not pretend to have full knowledge of.

All I know is that when I read about a $1.4 Billion dollar plan to put in new roads and there are millions for bike trails and a light rail line, I get excited about that. Check it out.

Cincinnati lacks the population density to support rail transit. It could only be supported by massive subsidies and a net wealth transfer.

Cincinnati's voters know this and voted down the most recent rail initiative by something like 2-to-1.
