Re: “Village Embraces Rail in Bid to 'Put the Junction Back in the Junction'

One train a day is a all cost operation. The way to increase ridership and have more volume to lower costs per rider is to add service. The Vermont could cut more travel times with Tilt Train equipment! They Tilt on those old flat curves with faster running times. Without very high speed.

Re: “Burlington-Rutland Passenger Rail Line Coming

$54.80 is based on a once a day service. The more trains the more riders. That cost is cut by every train added.Improving the tracks for passenger service benefits Vermonters by making the tracks and trains safer. $54.80 is not much compared to the expense of Route 7! Or the per passenger cost of the airline services in the area. Of the Essential Air Service program. Burlington is booming! A wonderful place to live and visit. This will make it more so. I just hope to see a section of the train head for the second major market BOSTON. It also would be nice if a connection was made with the Lake Shore Limited Boston to Cleveland-Chicago service.
