The Toledo Metropolitan Area is a metropolitan area centered in the American city of Toledo, Ohio with 656,696 residents and four counties within Northwest Ohio. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the metropolitan area includes the counties of Fulton, Lucas, Ottawa and Wood.

The separate urban area of Fremont, Ohio, which has strong commuter interchange with the Toledo metropolitan area, is included in a wider labor market area called the Toledo-Fremont Combined Statistical Area. A wider definition may add the Sandusky Metropolitan Area, although the US Census considers them separate MSAs. Other extended additions may include the Monroe, Michigan MSA, the micropolitan areas of Findlay, Tiffin, and Adrian, Michigan, as well as Henry and Putnam counties in Ohio. Some people even consider the Toledo Metro Area as an extension of Metro Detroit, since the two areas share common cultural ties.

The Toledo area is also the nation's third busiest rail hub, 15th-busiest air cargo hub (Toledo Express Airport), and one of the busiest ports on the Great Lakes. This area is fairly large and is maintaining its population. Toledo is also a popular hub location for transportation companies such as UPS and BAX Global.
