CINCINNATI - The Tri-State is home to many fascinating facts, offbeat oddities, and "I did not know that," moments. With that in mind, WCPO asks "Who Knew?"

Dump the Pump Day is June 19, but Cincinnati Metro is not waiting to thank current users of public transit and try to convince others to get on board. It has activities planned throughout the month.
