City, County OK Amtrak Funding PlansPosted: Updated:
More local governments have approved plans to fund Amtrak's Hoosier State line for one year. Our partners at WBAA in West Lafayette report the city of West Lafayette and Tippecanoe County Commissioners have approved funding proposals. The city will pay nealry $17,000 per month, while the county is coming up with $25,000 each month.
One commissioner voted against the deal, calling it an unwise investment because the track has a terrible history.
Other cities paying for the service include Lafayette, Crawfordsville and Rensselaer.
