Whether you're riding to school, to work or anywhere else Metro takes you, there's no better way to spend your commute than with a good book. That's why Metro has teamed up with the The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County for our Read & Ride program. Each month we'll recommend a book available at any library for bus riders to enjoy while on board.

If you prefer to do your on-board reading on an e-reader, don't worry -- we've got you covered too! The Public Library offers thousands of book in digital form through it's eBranch.
