CINCINNATI — The city of Cincinnati announced a new perk Wednesday for baseball fans who purchase same-day tickets to Cincinnati Reds games this season.
Fans can now use valid same-day game tickets for free rides on the Cincinnati Bell Connector. The promotion begins Wednesday as the Reds take on the Atlanta Braves for a 6:40 p.m. game, and continues for the entire 2019 season.
Using a digital or printed ticket, fans can hop aboard the streetcar for free rides to or from The Banks, Downtown and Over-the-Rhine on the same date as the game listed on the ticket.
Show the game ticket to the fare inspector instead of the traditional streetcar pass.
Game tickets will be eligible for free rides on the streetcar all day on game days.
The promotion was made possible by a donation from Woods Hardware, according to a city news release.
“By making the streetcar free on game days with a paid ticket, it’s our way to give back and thank Cincinnati for the tremendous success we’ve had at our Downtown Cincinnati hardware store,” said Matt Woods, owner of Woods Hardware. “Go Reds!”
