Your Ticket to Ride is Coming!

Updated: Nov 23, 2022

Are you ready to get a ticket to ride the 3C&D Rail Corridor? Convenient, smooth, fast passenger train service from Cleveland to Cincinnati, via Columbus and Dayton? Right now, we have our best opportunity in half a century to make it happen.

The bipartisan infrastructure bill, passed in August 2022, offers billions of dollars for passenger rail. As a result, AAO has been hard at work across the state to garner support. Right now, AAO’s advocacy has helped spur five important groups to hop aboard and push for the 3C&D:

  • Coalition of Ohio Municipal Leaders

  • Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency

  • Richland County Regional Planning Commission

  • Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission

  • Toledo Metropolitan area Council of Governments

Mayors from big and small cities along with the state’s foremost transportation planning agencies agree: a connected system of intercity passenger trains is critical to the economic future of the Buckeye State.
