CINCINNATI-TRANSIT.net


In 2010 my book Cincinnati's Incomplete Subway: The Complete History was published by The History Press.
You can preview the book and buy a paperback or digital version at Amazon.com. The book can be bought locally
at Joseph-Beth in the Rookwood Shopping Center, The Cincinnati Museum Center gift shop, and at the Cincy Haus
on Vine St. in Over-the-Rhine. It can also be borrowed from the Cincinnati/Hamilton County Public Library.

*update 8/10/14 -- I'm happy to announce that a third edition of the book was printed in summer 2014 and so it will continue to be available in area stores and at Amazon.com
