January 3, 2024

OXFORD, OHIO – Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA), in partnership with Miami University, will break ground on its long-awaited Chestnut Street Multimodal Station (97 W. Chestnut St., Oxford, OH 45056) on Friday, Jan. 19, at 11:30 a.m. Located at the old site of Talawanda High School, this transit hub will serve as a concourse providing passenger connections to BCRTA services and regional buses.

With a strategic eye to the future, BCRTA plans to blend this location seamlessly into an Amtrak platform.

Other features will include:

• State-of-the-art passenger waiting areas

• Publicly accessible restrooms

• Bike storage

• Real-time transit information

• Passenger kiosks with customer service

• Intermodal transfer bays

“This is a project more than ten years in the making, so seeing everyone’s hard work come to fruition is tremendously exciting,” said Matthew Dutkevicz, executive director of BCRTA. “The transit hub will fulfill transit needs throughout Butler County and positively affect countless lives, day in and day out. We’re deeply proud of the development and can’t wait for the beautiful space to take shape and transform the community we proudly serve.”

The Chestnut Street Multimodal Facility is expected to be operational in late 2025.
