FOR A CONNECTED MIDWEST

Advocating for better passenger rail development in Ohio since 1973, All Aboard Ohio is the primary representative for passenger-rail supporters in Ohio. Currently we are actively working with government officials on local and state levels to advocate and educate about the advantages of expanding public transit. Up to 6 passenger rail lines could be operational or in development by 2030 with continued support and advocacy.
