As the top "90-minute" air market in America and the intersection of Interstates 70 and 75 just north of town, (making Dayton one of the top ten "90-minute" land markets as well), Dayton truly is "The Crossroads of America".
AirIn fact, Dayton is also the largest "second morning" air market in America-with more than 140 million people (56% of the US population) living within 600 miles! For people who fly regularly, this means shorter flights, lower air fares, more productive days and fewer overnight stays. The Dayton International Airport (454-8200) is serviced by all major airlines, and is just 20 minutes north of downtown Dayton in Vandalia. There are also six, smaller private airports in the region (mainly south of Dayton) if you wish to fly your own plane.
BusDislike flying? Bus transport to anywhere in America is offered through the Greyhound-Trailways system provided from the Transportation Center in downtown Dayton. (1-800-231-2222)
