The transportation work of the Cincinnati Chamber is laser-focused on ensuring our region builds and sustains a multi-modal regional transportation network that connects people to jobs and supports a talent-rich workforce.
The Chamber brings together business leaders, policy makers, and the public to articulate a shared community voice on transportation priorities that strengthens our region’s competitiveness, facilitates economic development, and places us on the cutting edge of transportation innovation. We are committed to making data-driven decisions that align public and private resources to the region’s shared transportation vision.
