Award-winning reporter Laure Quinlivan dives into Cincinnati's transit debate

Award-winning investigative reporter and Cincinnati City Council candidate, Laure Quinlivan put together this incredible report on transit systems. Quinlivan visits Portland to speak with residents, businesses and community leaders about their modern streetcars, light rail, and walkable urban neighborhoods to see what a city similar in size to Cincinnati has achieved by embracing transportation options.


Quinlivan then goes to Germany to see how the leader in modern transport systems is working today. Streetcars, bicycles, pedestrian-only spaces, and streetcars are what most German cities are embracing to make their cities more livable. To my knowledge there has been no other report that dives into this issue as in-depth as Quinlivan's report. Please take the time to view the video in its entirety and please share it with a friend or family member who may be looking to learn more.

Not bad but, what is this a promotional video or a report? Just add a little counter argument in there...if I showed this to someone who was in opposition to the streetcar but somewhat open minded I feel that they would turn this thing off instantly.
