WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority (SORTA) will receive new federal resources to develop a transit hub located in near the University of Cincinnati. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that SORTA has been awarded FY 2010 Federal Transit Administration resources through the Bus and Bus Facilities program to create a multimodal hub for the University of Cincinnati area.
“This will ensure that the world-class education offered at University of Cincinnati is bolstered by world-class transportation infrastructure. A strong public transportation system is critical to creating a vibrant and local economy,” Brown said. “Increased public transportation options will only further boost the area’s attractiveness to small business owners, young people, and homeowners.”
SORTA will receive $1,000,000 to complete this project.
