The Case for Commuter Rail

Posted Tuesday, November 20, 2007

So, driving a car sixty miles a day costs about 78-hundred dollars a year. Now if you switch to the train, well, you might save as much as six grand, but what if there's no train? That's the question the west side suburbs have been asking for years, and momentum is building now for commuter rail that could connect Lorain to Cleveland, along with various points in between. Tuesday at nine, we'll hear about the idea, its prospects for success, and its prospects of getting you to work on time.
