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.
 

 

Transit Development Districts, or TDDs, were authorized last year by the the state of Indiana. They are special-purpose districts designated to help fund specific transportation projects. The TDD advisory committee for the South Shore Line met this week in Merrillville to discuss the implementation of the TDDs along the South Shore Line.
