Bus servicesEdit

The center serves as a hub for the SORTA during sporting events and other special events.[7]

Future rail connectionsEdit

The center is also expected to serve as the central hub for the planned Eastern Corridor Commuter Rail[8] connecting Cincinnati to Milford.[9]

CriticismEdit

The center has been criticised due to the fact that it is largely unused. Proponents point out delays in the streetcar lightrail and commuter rail plans as well as delays in construction of The Banks a multi-use commercial and residential project.[10]
