Friday’s Headlines

12:01 AM EST on November 23, 2018

    • Like many cities, Charleston, S.C., swapped out its trolleys for buses 80 years ago, which proved to be a mistake. Recent decades have seen several failed efforts to bring passenger rail back to the now-traffic-choked city. (Post and Courier)

    • The Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority will have to dip into reserves to avoid bus service cuts in Cincinnati next year. (WCPO)
    • It sounds like the 280,000 "yellow vest" protesters in France are angry about more than just the price of gas. But what? (City Lab)
