Commuters: Celebrate National Transportation Infrastructure Day by trying the proposed R5 route April 9.

With more funding for public transit, BCRTA could provide this vital link between Miami University, a major regional employer, and the greater Cincinnati area served by Cincinnati METRO.  

With the right amount of support, the R5 - Oxford & Colerain commuter route could operate from 5 a.m. until midnight daily, making regular connections with Cincinnati METRO and providing access to and from Miami, according to the BCRTA.
