Downtown Airport
The Downtown Airport is one of the first airports in the Ozarks region, has one runway, and can accommodate most modern private aircraft.

Goods Movement

Rail
The Ozarks Transportation Organization region is primarily served by BNSF Railway Company, though Missouri & Northern Arkansas Railroad Company also operates within the region. The Partnership Industrial Center and several industries, including the City Utilities power plants, are served by rail.

The Railroad Reconfiguration and Grade Separation Study is the current implementation plan for addressing rail and traffic concerns in the OTO region.  One key project is the grade separation with James River Freeway and the construction of the US 60/65 interchange. The grade separation at Chestnut, Division, and Cherry is a phased project. The Chestnut grade separation is currently being scoped and designed, with construction planned as a cost-share project for 2014 and 2015.

Trucking
The trucking and warehousing industry accounts for nearly 5 percent of the jobs in the OTO region. Local trucking firms are located mostly in northeast Springfield. I-44 has some of the highest truck volumes in Missouri. Missouri Department of Transportation currently provides 17 spaces for truck parking in Strafford, along I-44. The highest truck volumes on the OTO highway network are on I-44 and US 65. In 2007, I-44 even carried more tonnage than I-70.
