For an interesting take on how mass transit could help revitalize Indianapolis, see IBJ reporter Chris Oâ??Malleyâ??s story this week on the topic. Ball State grad students
dreamed up several concepts for plunking new rail stations along existing track to not only move people around the city, but
also to spark revitalizations of tired neighborhoods.
Some of the ideas are a bit fanciful. But credit the students for having a pulse.
Mass transit skeptics have long warned that the city is too spread out and too thinly populated to make mass transit cost
effective. But the studentsâ?? ideas are designed to increase population density â?? and raise property values.
What do you like about the studentsâ?? ideas? What would work and wouldnâ??t work?
