What you said: Should the Cincinnati streetcar be expanded?

We want to know what you think.

As part of our "What You Said" feature, we'd like to give you a chance to share your opinions about the Cincinnati streetcar.

Specifically: Should the Cincinnati streetcar be expanded?

The streetcar, the Cincinnati Bell Connector, just passed its one-year birthday. The question is, can it become more than what it is now?

Here's a good backgrounder on the state of the Downtown transit system: 9 things to know about the streetcar.

When it began service in September 2016, some city leaders were optimistic that it would grow to other parts of the city.

Uptown and the University of Cincinnati area are most often mentioned as possibilities, and a 2009 study showed four possible routes that would connect the streetcar from Over-the-Rhine to Clifton, Corryville and other neighborhoods. 

Should Cincinnati move forward with extending the streetcar?
