Great idea. This willl get more folks without cars, to spend money games of chance. I just wonder how may casino visitors don't have health insurance & blame the gov't.

I think it is ashame that we are making ot easier for people to squander their money at casinos. Desperate people who are waiting or hoping for a miracle are being willingly taken advantage of. It is just really sad.....I wish their were no gambling boats within drving distance of Indiana period.

I think it's a great idea. We'll be able to enjoy ourselves without worrying about being too tired to drive home.

Great ideal and I think this will help control traffic as well. Keep up the good work and ideals.

Here is a way that Kentucky can lose more dollars to the surrounding States. When are the legislators in Kentucky going to wise up and stop the outflow of dollars?

When would this service start? And what number would you need to call to find out where to catch the shuttle service?

OK. Let's get this right. Current policy is no Casino in INDY, but if you want, walk to the bus stop, and catch a ride to French Lick. Gamble until your hearts content. Is it possible to have our state officials see the obvious truth? We should just go ahead and build one right downtown...save the travel time, and keeps the profits in Marion County.

Indy is already getting a major share of the businesses and jobs in Indiana. It is time that others get a chance.

I agree wtih John W Indianapolis should have a casino the profits from that could help pay for our schools and the Colts stadium so the taxpayers don't have to.

The reason the politicians don't want a casino in Indianapolis Is "That Inianapolis is a nice frindly town He,he. Wonder why there is ppl's murdered every week there. Give me a break "Its my money why can't I spend it as I chose". I play poker and it is low limit poker that is what I do. No difference in playing Golf for money then Poker for money.

I think you hopelessly ignorant. Most people who go aren't squandering anything, they take money that is entertainment funds and have a good time, win or lose. The desperate people don't go to Casinos, they buy lottery tickets to "get the big wins". I can have a good time there and usually spend less than I would for dinner and a movie.
