On Friday, in anticipation of the millionth ride, lucky passenger Angie Jolevski won the Millionth Ride prize package loaded with goodies, including a year of free rides from Cincinnati Bell, as well as gifts from 21c Museum Hotel, tickets to Reds, Cyclones, Aronoff Center, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, CSO/POPS, Prime Cincinnati, DCI, Rhinegeist, Rookwood Pottery, Richter & Philips, Contemporary Arts Center and Findlay Market.
