Best Free Ride Around Downtown Cincinnati, Covington & Newport: OGGO

OGGO has assembled a fleet of four-passenger electric vehicles to prowl around downtown Cincinnati, Over-the-Rhine, Covington and Newport and provide free rides from late afternoon to the evening. OGGO lines up sponsors to cover the expense; in return, companies get brightly colored exterior signage and some promotion inside the cars. If scooters and bikes aren’t quite your thing, OGGO is a perfect choice for quick trips around our urban core. The only cost to you? A voluntary tip for your pleasant driver, someone recruited to “cruise the city, show people around and make some money.” It must be working: OGGO has more than 2,000 followers on Facebook. Hail a vehicle you see cruising — sometimes one will run by while you’re waiting at a streetcar platform. Even easier: Download the free app and summon a ride from where you are to wherever you need to go, from Findlay Market to Hotel Covington. Rides operate after 4 p.m. daily. OGGO, oggo.com.
