WHY DOES OHIO NEED RAIL?
Modern train on tracks

1

Economic and Regional Integration

Reconnecting Ohio’s major cities via passenger rail, particularly the “3C+D” route, would enhance travel efficiency, stimulate job creation, support local businesses, and attract investments, while offering a sustainable transportation alternative.

Strategic Connectivity

Ohio’s location as a gateway between the Midwest and the eastern U.S. positions it to benefit from and contribute to regional travel, with the potential to serve an estimated 400,000-500,000 passengers annually.

Infrastructure Investment
