Thanks to a couple weekend shuttle programs, All-Star event-goers can leave their cars (and stacks of quarters for parking) at home.
From July 12-14, Cincinnati Metro buses will be shuttling fans between Washington Park, Duke Energy Convention Center, and Fountain Square downtown, from July 10-13. Bus rides in this area are free on Friday from 7–10 p.m., on Saturday from 12 p.m. – 10 p.m., on Sunday from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. and on Monday from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Leinenkugel is also providing free trolley rides between popular restaurants and bars in Newport, Covington, Fountain Square, Over-the-Rhine, Oakley, Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout. These two shuttles will travel in a loop from 4 p.m. until midnight for baseball fans looking to celebrate America’s favorite pastime. Stops include Newport on the Levee, East 4th Street and Tobacco Alley (Covington), Madison and Gilmore Ave. (Oakley), Wasson Road and Drakewood, Observatory and Delta Ave., 12th Street and Walnut, and East 6th Street and Walnut.
