Let’s Talk About Public Transit Equity

Written by David Siders, Civic Engagement Coordinator, Downtown Main Library 

Do you live in East Westwood, Lincoln Heights, Millvale, Mt. Airy, Mt. Washington, Springdale, or South Cumminsville? If you do, we want to hear your opinion.  

The Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library is proudly partnering with the Human Services Chamber of Hamilton County to gather information from residents about needed improvements to public transportation in these neighborhoods. 

Last spring, the voters of Hamilton County approved a levy that invests an additional $50M per year into our public transit system. Cincinnati Metro plans to increase hours and frequency on existing routes and create new routes, particularly in areas that are not well-served by the current system. 

“This is an amazing opportunity, especially for those who rely on the bus to access jobs, medical appointments, the library, and the grocery store,” said Gina Marsh, executive director of the Human Services Chamber of Hamilton County. “We want to ensure Cincinnati Metro considers the input and needs of residents.” 

How to Participate 

Please take a moment to complete the brief, five-minute survey about what improvements are needed where you live. Please respond by the end of the month.

Each week in October, those who complete the survey are entered for a chance to win a $50 Kroger gift card. 

If you have any questions about the survey, please reach out to your local library staff or email info@humanserviceschamber.org. 

The following library branches provide paper surveys if you do not wish to complete the survey online: Northside, Forest Park, Groesbeck, Mt. Washington, Sharonville, and Wyoming.
