August 2014

Happy birthday, Metro!
Metro turns 41 on Aug. 15, but we hardly look a day over 25. In this photo from last year's 40th anniversary celebration., Capt. and Mrs. Rex Settlemoir (along with Operator Orlando King) celebrate their meeting on a Metro bus in 1978 that led to their marriage.

 ...Is new again
This view of Hughes Corner was taken on the occasion of the grand opening of the Uptown Transit District. While many things have changed, the stately bastion of education has remained a welcome constant in an ever-evolving universe.

A new way to go Metro
Metro's new Uptown Transit District provides four coordinated, inviting and sheltered areas to wait for buses and make connections, with real-time information and ticket vending machines. Here, the location at Vine and Calhoun shines like a jewel in the night in the shadow of old St. George Church.



Everything old...
This view of Hughes Corner was taken June 18, 1965, the last day for trolley bus operation in Cincinnati, and shows Hughes High School in the background.
