Riverfront Transit Center
The Riverfront Transit Center is Metro’s major event bus staging facility located under 2nd Street, conveniently located near the Great American Ball Park, Paul Brown Stadium.
The Riverfront Transit Center offers a safe, fast, and efficient way to accommodate large numbers of charter, school and transit buses serving riverfront venues and activities. The goal of the center is to remove buses from the street grid surrounding The Banks and riverfront park. Previously, Cinergy Field had been used for bus staging.
