We have determined distances and Hubble ratios for galaxies at intermediate redshifts, cz=about 10,000 to 35,000 km/s, by applying the CO-line Tully-Fisher relation to our 12CO (J=1-0)-line observations using the Nobeyama 45-m telescope, and near-IR (NIR) photometry in the J and H bands using the 1.88-m telescope at Okayama Astrophysical Observatory. By averaging the Hubble ratios from J-band result, we obtain a Hubble constant of H_0 = 60 (+/- 10) km/s/Mpc. We argue that the CO line-NIR TFR
