The new Amtrak expansion could bring changes to the state’s economy.
Non-profit organization All Aboard Ohio says this expansion will provide hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars to the state’s economy.
On Tuesday, the Department of Transportation announced that the Corridor ID Program and Ohio have been slated for four major passenger rail service routes.
Dayton, Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati will receive planning grants to expand passenger routes using an existing Amtrak corridor.
These grants are part of the first of three phases that include planning, engineering, and construction.
