What is CTC?
CTC is the primary provider of public transportation in Clermont County. Founded in 1977 as CART (Clermont Area Rural Transit), CTC has continued to evolve and now offers three fixed routes in addition to its Dial-A-Ride services. CTC also provides the funding for Metro Route 82X and some of the funding for route 29X.
CTC Route 1 – Felicity to Eastgate via Amelia will be eliminated effective September 30, 2019. This means that the last date Route 1 will run will be Thursday, September 26, 2019. Should you need service after September 26, 2019, please call CTC’s Dial-A-Ride service at 513-732-7433. Dial-A-Ride is a door-to-door public transit service which operates very similar to a taxi cab. To schedule a ride you can call UP TO 14 DAYS IN ADVANCE, trips are scheduled on a first come first serve basis. The scheduling office is open from 5:30 am to 6:30 pm Monday thru Friday and 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday. The service is open to any person in Clermont County. All vehicles are wheelchair accessible. Dial-A-Ride service is available Monday thru Saturday 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
Current CTC job opportunities are posted on the Clermont County Auditor’s website.
Like all transit systems in Ohio, CTC cannot provide all the service citizens request. Click the below link to go to the Ohio Public Transit Association’s website to tell your representatives you support public transit. Most states provide around 23% of the funding for public transit.
CTC operates county wide Dial-A-Ride service inside the yellow line. The lines represent the fixed routes CTC operates; Route 1 Eastgate – Felicity Shuttle, Route 2X New Richmond Express and Route 4 X Amelia Express.
