Even though the website has been near silent for almost a year, it seems there is still some interest in regional rail in the Harrisburg area.The MTP is going to be having a breakfast on Sept. 21st to pimp the idea.
I can’t say I’m fully versed in all the political shenanigans involved in getting such a thing off the ground, but I do think that it would be very cool to be able to ride the train to commute to York or Lancaster. Check out the proposed route.
Of course, it would probably be a whole lot cheaper to improve the bus service around here first. (Dreadful website design aside) as far as I’m aware, there are no bike racks on any of the busses, and the busses stop running around 7:00PM. This makes them pretty much useless to those of us taking night classes at Penn State Harrisburg.
I wonder how many drunks could be kept off the streets by having the busses make a 2:00AM run along 2nd street.
