NIRPC OKs Bikes on Trains Study

Share this post

Region planners want to see if bringing bikes on South Shore trains is doable. NIRPC's Executive Board Thursday agreed to add a feasibility study to their short-term transportation plan. There's a lot of support for the plan, but a number of issues would have to be worked out, including how it could affect train schedules.
NIRPC says the proposed ‘Bikes on Trains’ Study would largely be an engineering study aimed at assessing the feasibility of accommodating bicycles on the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District’s rolling stock, including an identification of the requirements, opportunities, and barriers for instituting such a program, as well as a series of preferred alternatives.
The study represents a collaborative effort between NIRPC, NICTD, and Save the Dunes, and has also been made possible by generous local funding from Arcelor Mittal, the National Parks Conservation Association, the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority, Porter County, LaPorte County, NIPSCO, and the Greenways Foundation.
