Many Cincinnati residents never thought the day would come, some never wanted it to come. But after years of planning, construction, debates and political battles, the day is finally here. 

The Cincinnati streetcar, now officially named the Cincinnati Bell Connector, begins service to the public at noon this Friday. Rides will be free throughout the weekend, and a variety of events will be held to commemorate the streetcar's first weekend of operation.

Joining us for a preview of the Cincinnati Bell Connector's grand opening weekend are Cincinnati City Council Member and Chair of council's Transportation Committee, Amy Murray and Cincinnati Metro/Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority Public Relations Manager, Brandy Jones.
