Known as the "Crossroads of America," the Miami Valley is at the intersection of Interstates 70 & 75, which cross just north of the Dayton city limits. I-75 connects the northern border of the U.S. to the southernmost tip in Florida, while I-70 connects the east and west coasts. This intersection is a focal point in the national network of interstate highways and major state routes.

Ohio 3-C & D Rail Corridor

In early 2010, Ohio was awarded $400 million in federal economic stimulus funds to construct a passenger rail corridor.  The proposed passenger rail corridor would stretch from Cincinnati to Dayton to Columbus to Cleveland.  Proponents highlight that this rail corridor would increase travel, tourism, recreation and business connections to major metropolitan areas in and outside the State of Ohio.   Proposed rail stops in the Dayton region would be in downtown Dayton, Riverside (across from USAF Museum) and Springfield.   Currently environmental and feasibility assessments are being conducted.

For additional information, please visit the “3-C Is Me” website.

Greyhound Bus Lines provides nationwide bus service with 22 arrivals/departures daily. The Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (GDRTA) provides county-wide bus service including handicapped service. Many of the GDRTA buses are electric powered.

RailTrails are old railroad beds converted into trails for public use. They are often used for walking, biking, roller blading and running.
