About BCRTA

BCRTA’s mission is to support Butler County's quality of life and economic development through public transportation solutions.

BCRTA was created by the Butler County Commissioners in 1994 as a public agency in accordance with Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 306 to be governed by a nine-member Board of Trustees appointed by the Butler County Commissioners with the intention of resulting in a coordinated transportation program that better meets the needs of the residents of the county to:

  • Provide access to health and human and services programs
  • Better foster the economic development and vitality of the county by providing better access to jobs, education, shopping, government services

  • Conserve energy and reduce pollution.

  • Become the designated grantee (designated by the Ohio Governor) for federal and state transportation funds within the Cincinnati Urbanized Area of Butler County.
  • Serve as a broker of transportation services for various county boards and agencies that wish to contract with the BCRTA to manage their transportation needs.
