After years of planning and construction, Cincinnati's new streetcar system, the Cincinnati Bell Connector, will finally have its grand opening on September 9. 

Another streetcar system began operating this May–: the KC Streetcar in Kansas City, Missouri. There are similarities, and some big differences, in the two streetcar systems. Joining us to discuss the KC Streetcar and how its ridership has been since its May opening is public radio station KCUR 89.3 Digital Editor Cody Newill.
