Rebuild the streetcar. That's the message in a letter from the agency that oversees its operations, sent to city officials after the Cincinnati streetcar was shut down last month for four days because it couldn't run in the extreme cold.
And a rebuild, the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority said, will take a long time.
The letter doesn't specify how much a rebuild could cost. But City Manager Harry Black is clear on who should pay the bill. "CAF built these vehicles and must fix them, and we are fully engaging them including through the City Solicitor's office," Black wrote in a memo sent Friday in response to the SORTA letter.
