Ohio Loves Transit

From February 10-14, OPTA will be promoting a statewide initiative to celebrate Transit and how it is moving Ohio forward.


Morning, noon and night, Ohioans use public transportation. Ohio's 61 transit systems make it possible for older adults to maintain their independence. Transit serves as a vital link for people with disabilities. And it fuels our economy by transporting people to jobs.  We encourage everyone to take a ride on your local public transit system during Ohio Loves Transit week!


Ohio’s public transportation systems are meeting the needs of our growing older adult population.  Transit's specialized  services, technology advancements and senior-friendly vehicles make it possible for older Ohioans to maintain an independent lifestyle. 


Ohio’s transit systems are a vital link to people with disabilities and their family members.  Urban, suburban and rural systems help ensure that persons with disabilities can remain actively involved in their communities by providing rides to work, job training programs, medical appointments and adult day care facilities.

Transit works for Ohio employees and employers. It provides reliable and affordable transportation to job centers. Transit drives our economy by giving individuals access to work and employers access to workers. Public transportation serves our favorite community places like our colleges and universities, our airports and convention centers, and our sports arenas and shopping malls. Ohio’s transit systems can get you there.


Use our graphic and outreach materials to show some love to Ohio transit.

Also, let's get social during Ohio Loves Transit Week! Here is a resource with OPTA members' social media tags to use in your posts.
