Ohio passenger rail public meeting

The Ohio Rail Development Commission (ORDC) and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) are gathering broad public input on the 3C "Quick Start" Passenger Rail Plan, which will connect Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati as part of the nationally-prioritized Chicago Hub Network.

Public input and expert technical analysis are helping ORDC and ODOT identify the most viable routes for the initial 79-mph 3C "Quick Start" service. With funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the 3C "Quick Start" plan would have conventional-speed passenger service running by as early as 2011, generating jobs and economic development, and putting travel choice in reach of more than 60 percent of Ohio's population.
