Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Plaza

Passenger Rail Services
The Port Authority acquired one of the last union stations constructed in the United States - Central Union Terminal - from Conrail in 1994. The Port Authority invested over $11 million in various funds including federal grants and Port Authority funds to renovate the historic facility into a modern train and bus terminal and office complex. The terminal was rededicated as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Plaza in 2001 and more than 100 passengers pass through the Plaza daily to destinations such as Chicago, Buffalo, NY and Washington D.C., making it one of Ohio’s busiest passenger rail hubs.

Rail Cargo Services
Four major freight railroads move freight through the region. With several rail yards loading petroleum products, automotive parts, completed automobiles, bulk and break-bulk cargo, and food products, Toledo ranks as one of the top five rail hubs in the U.S.
