Study: New Amtrak service would create millions in economic benefits to Greater Columbus

By: Mark Ferenchik

An economic impact study on an Amtrak route that would serve Columbus estimates that the initial investment in the region would generate between $36 million and $48 million, with $22 million to $29 million in wages for local workers.

The study commissioned by the non-profit rail advocacy group All Aboard Ohio also found that ongoing ridership would generate $3.9 million to $7.2 million in new wages a year.
