Ohio on the Move - Transportation in the Buckeye State

This book describes how few American states can match the rich and diverse transportation heritage of Ohio. It discusses how every major form of public conveyance eventually has served the Buckeye state. From the “Canal Age” to the “Interurban Era,” Ohio has emerged as a national leader. The state’s central location, abundant natural resources, impressive wealth, shrewd business leadership, and episodes of good fortune explain the dynamic nature of the state’s transport past. The book is the first systematic and scholarly account of the transportation history of Ohio. To date, little has appeared on several of the subjects discussed in the book, including intercity bus and truck operations and commercial aviation. The more familiar topics of river and lake transport, canals, steam railroads, electric interurbans, and mass transit are extensively explored in the Ohio context.
