Chillicothe Transit System (CTS) started offering services in 1982. The city passed a one-tenth of one percent operating levy in 1981 for the funding of the system and has successfully submitted and received Federal and State funding for the operations and capital as well. The CTS service area is within city limits as well as routes in surrounding Ross County. CTS operates fixed routes, paratransit services, County routes and contract services.

Innovation Track

From centreforpublicimpact.org:

From November 2020 to August 2021, the city of Chillicothe, Ohio participated in the Bloomberg Harvard Innovation Track, a Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative program delivered in partnership with the Centre for Public Impact. During the program, 11 interdisciplinary city teams from across the U.S. developed innovative solutions to a pressing city problem while adopting cutting-edge innovation techniques that engage residents in testing, adapting, and scaling ideas with the potential for long-term impact. 
In Chillicothe, the team participating in the Bloomberg Harvard Innovation Track focused on improving public transit throughout the city. The team came into the Track with a goal of making public transit more responsive to potential users, thereby attracting new riders throughout the city and leading to a new program of on-demand public transit. Over the course of the Innovation Track, Chillicothe zeroed in on two potential transit solutions: a dual fixed-route/on-demand public transportation system and a highly popular trolley.
