The Cincinnati Streetcar will begin pre-revenue service on Aug. 7, marking the next step in preparing the streetcar for public use.

During the pre-revenue period, the streetcar operating and maintenance team can work out problems that arise and correct them before passenger service begins Sept. 9, Cincinnati Streetcar officials said in a press release.

In addition, all "behind-the-scenes" operations such as dispatching and supervision will be fully functioning.

The 3.6-mile Cincinnati Streetcar route has 18 stops throughout the city's downtown area. CAF USA built the vehicles for the line.

The Cincinnati Streetcar is owned and funded by the city, managed by the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority and operated by Transdev.
