Youngstown is a city in the state of Ohio, inside of Mahoning County where it holds the county seat. Located on Ohio’s eastern border with Pennsylvania, Youngstown is a hub for commerce and travel, especially with freight, rail, and consumer goods. Youngstown used to be a major manufacturing center, but as time has gone on many of the companies that were headquartered in the city have moved abroad for cheaper starting goods and lower wages. The population in Youngstown has fallen in the past few decades to 65,405, but its metropolitan area is still relatively large at 562,739.
Youngstown has its own transportation system, headed by the Western Reserve Transit Authority. The WRTA is a bus system that serves the entire county. Greyhound also has a significant presence within the city, with terminals downtown that serve the city of Youngstown. The city’s railroads and Amtrak don’t serve residents anymore, choosing to instead only move freight and consumer goods. Youngstown does have its own airport, but it only has a limited number of flights and destinations available.
