Butler County RTA in partnership with Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority (Cincinnati Metro) will be resuming services of the 42x – West Chester Express starting on March 8, 2021. The bus route funded by the Butler County RTA and operated by Cincinnati Metro has been in service since 1999.

The service was suspended in May of 2020 when ridership dropped due to the    Coronavirus. Prior to the pandemic, the West Chester Express averaged over 9,000 riders a month. –

“We’re pleased to work with our partners at SORTA to reintroduce this valuable workforce service for Butler County as we begin to recover from the fallout of COVID-19.” Said Matthew Dutkevicz, Executive Director of BCRTA. 

The West Chester Express begins at the Meijer Park and Ride on Tylersville Road with direct routes to the downtown Cincinnati area. The bus runs Monday – Friday starting at 6:02am. The 42x is convenient, affordable, and efficient for residents that travel daily to the downtown area.
