Ohio Governor Announces $106M to Support Local Transit Projects

COLUMBUS, OH — Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Director Jack Marchbanks announce more than $100 million in investments to support public transportation in Ohio.

A total of $106 million will be awarded to 384 transit projects throughout Ohio. ODOT’s Office of Transit is awarding the funds through seven separate grant programs that focus on workforce mobility, senior citizen and special needs transportation, rural transit, and busing.

Funding will be used for a variety of purposes such as transit fleet expansion, replacement vehicles, preventative maintenance, facility upgrades, new equipment and technology, and operating assistance.

“Transportation isn’t just about moving vehicles; it’s about moving people. These grant funds target the pillar of ODOT’s mission to make transportation accessible, especially in our rural communities,” Marchbanks said.

The grants will be awarded through the following ODOT programs:
