I’ve previously posted some fantasy transit maps for various cities. This older post included a Columbus one by Michael Tyznik. He’s back with a fantasy transit map of Cincinnati. Only this case, the fantasy is the actual completed 2031 train system that would have been funded by a reject ballot referendum in 2002.
Now I’m not sure a massive regional rail system would really be a wise use of funds for Cincinnati. Nor do I believe the full system could have been built without follow-on tax increases as costs are always underestimated. Nevertheless, this represents a major road not traveled for Cincinnati, as it were. Instead, there’s billions of dollars in highway improvements slated. Time will tell how this and other choices the community has made will pan out.
