Leaders Listen Transportation Survey: Bringing Passenger Rail Back to Columbus
Ethan Hug, Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Central Ohio focused on regional transportation planning. To better understand perspective on transportation concerns, investments, and commuting needs across the 15-county region, MORPC collaborated with local media and the Ohio State University to conduct a survey. The survey illuminates passenger rail viability, which the region has been without for nearly 50 years.
