Résumé / Abstract

The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority of Cincinnati is developing the new Riverfront Transit Center to serve special events and attractions that are being developed along the city's central riverfront. The $42 million facility is scheduled to be fully operational in 2003. The two stadiums are part of an ambitious riverfront renewal plan that will result in the Midwest's largest sports and entertainment complex. The facility also will feature two new stadiums for professional baseball and football, an existing indoor arena, a new 14-ha (35-acre) festival park and concert venue, and the Freedom Center, a major museum commemorating the Underground Railroad. The Riverfront Transit Center is an integral part of the redesign of a 1.6-km (1-mi) segment of Interstate 71, which currently separates downtown Cincinnati from the Ohio River. The facility will include 20 sawtooth bus bays and two passing lanes to allow the movement of 20,000 passengers/h. By 2010, an estimated 375,000 passengers/year will use the transit center. In addition to being used for special events, the facility will be used on a daily basis by charter buses serving the Freedom Center.
