Bikes on the South Shore? Not yet.
First, let me apologize for the headline. I took a journalistic bent to get your attention. But don’t despair: if you want bikes on the train, you have a new venue to make your voice heard. http://www.in.gov/indot/3499.htm.
The link will take you to an Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) site that surveys your opinions on rail traffic in Indiana. Honestly, I don’t know how much influence INDOT has on the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD) who manage the Chicago and South Shore Line, but this is an opportunity to make your voice heard.
I gotta think INDOT and NICTD share some common goals and information.
If you think it might be neat to put your bike on the train, tell INDOT now.
