South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg gave his recommendations regarding the rerouting of the South Shore Train Line at the city’s common council meeting last night.

 

He says he'd like to see the  South Shore Line downtown. It would run alongside, if not be combined with the Transpo Station on South Street.

The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District, or NICTD, will host a final public hearing this evening regarding a proposal to increase fare prices about 5 percent.

Revenue generated by the 5 percent fare increase would pay for Positive Train Control, a safety system mandated through the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008, which can slow speeding trains, and override human operating errors.
