Quotes

...on US-23, but developers and businesses are looking at potential investments around the stations," said Larry Krieg, an AAATA board member. "This could be the beginning of a new kind of sustainable living for Southeast Michigan, based not solely on private vehicles, but with robust public options based on the fuel and operating efficiency of rail."
"Crews were out there striping the road today (Thursday), after which it reopened to all traffic," White said. "There's still some cleanup to do, and we also have to plant trees and do some seeding."
"It is nice to see that local governments, both in Livingston and Washtenaw counties, have been working together to obtain the grant that helped make this possible. We look forward to the two counties taking the next steps to make north-south commuter rail a reality -- a reality that is needed and wanted by the commuters using US-23."
David Walmroth, a local business owner and Board member of the Hamburg Historical Society said, "From easing vehicle congestion to enabling economic development, leveraging rail assets make sense. The beauty of the approach being adopted by the North-South Commuter Rail Study is that it includes casting a wide net for input while also detailing key costs. By actively soliciting input from businesses, government, and the public, the North-South Commuter Rail Study is taking a best-of-industry approach.”"
