The decision to sidetrack a 110-mph Chicago-Indianapolis-Cincinnati train hasn’t received any attention locally. High-speed rail could someday become an economic development engine here, but it has not gained as much attention here as improved highways or a commuter rail line from downtown to Noblesville.

Rising fuel costs may mean comeback for freight trainsRestricted Content

June 9, 2008
Chris O'Malley
Spiking diesel fuel prices have deflated trucking stocks and made road kill out of many a small motor carrier. It's sweet irony for anyone who's worn a pinstriped cotton cap to work. The rising price of diesel is poised to invigorate a mode of transportation that trucks nearly annihilated--the 40 freight railroads crisscrossing the state.

Test run of commuter rail could be relatively cheapRestricted Content

May 19, 2008
Chris O'Malley
Planners and politicians spent the better part of a decade and untold millions of dollars studying a mass transit system between downtown and the suburbs. They have little to show for it except mounds of reports and an estimate of $690 million, but the boys in bib overalls at the Indiana Transportation Museum think they can get it done for much less.

Bravo!_____NBCSN is available in almost 2 MILLION more homes than just a few years ago, but Indycar STILL gets less total viewers than it did just a few years ago when NBC took over Versus.

  5. Problem: most of the people responding to this article don't know about this service AT ALL! Why? Lack of awareness. This isn't IndyGo. This is CIRTA: might as well be the mattress company because they are asleep at the wheel - something like 3 directors over the last year? Playing with federal grant money is great! This "region" wants commuter rail service, has spent MILLIONS on Transportation studies yet can't even support a commuter bus line? This is largely for suburban riders to get to downtown - not for "service people to work in our hotels and restaurants" ! Get your head out of your backside!! These are professionals, students etc. that don't want to fight traffic, save some money on parking, gas, stress.... if CIRTA would put their federal money into widely promoting the sevive to Greenwood, Fishers & Carmel instead of finding directors and studies - this would be a successful service. Our family uses(d) it daily for the last several years - but the recent uncertainty & now unreliability due to cuts from Carmel has been a problem. Now, costs us an additional $350/month for gas & parking ( $4200/year) plus vehicle wear, service, environmental impact ... YES - this REGION needs this this type of service in order to keep growing and getting the people it needs to fill skilled positions in downtown Indianapolis. Think outside of your own car !!!
