Cincinnati supports Transportation MATTERS

Cincinnati City Council unanimously approved a resolution supporting Transportation MATTERS, a new statewide coalition that advocates for full funding of a safe and efficient multi-modal transportation network that preserves and enhances Ohio's mobility, economic competitiveness, and quality of life.

The resolution also expresses the City's desire to join the coalition.

Annual dues for a city of Cincinnati's size are $1,500.

Presented as a unified voice for Ohio's statewide interests, the coalition lists as members and prospective members the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments, the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, the City of Columbus, the Greater Dayton RTA, and the Greater Cleveland Partnership.

Other members include cities, transit agencies, chambers of commerce, metropolitan planning organizations, highway contractors, and transportation industry professionals.
