New Downtowner - Mass Transit

The Downtowner newspaper has gone through a revamp. It has a new print design, has expanded scope to cover 'inner neighborhoods' like Newport, Covington, OTR, etc. It is also dramatically larger than it used to be (current issue is 32 pages).

It's much improved, and has a lot of timely information. I stopped picking it up the last year or so, as it didn't seem to have much new info, but was pleasantly surprised when i picked up the most recent issue.

Another new addition (which is a long time in coming) is a website. It's not the best/most organized website I've ever seen, but there have been plenty of times when I've wanted to share an article on this blog, or with friends and couldn't because there was no website.

The cover story this week is a new story on the Streetcar initiative. If you've been paying attention to the news, there isn't ground-breaking info in the article, but it's another affirmation of why Street Cars make sense as a first step in Mass Transit for our region...

Downtowner has always distributed in Over-the-Rhine.

The "new" Downtowner can be picked up in Northern Ky, Clifton, Hyde Park, Oakley, Mount Lookout etc.

Their web site is getting better. Still needs work, though
