Not a good idea because it will become a pipeline for Chicongo's afri-trash to arrive here via subsidized tickets. Just look at how a busline to a mall in Whiteyville dooms that mall to an onslaught of groid criminality.

obama's afri-trash have ruined Chicongo for decent folks. No need to export his criminals here.

Ohioans have already said no to something like this.

A sink hole of money for consultants and "studies."

Americans are NOT going to give up the convenience and privacy of their cars to conform to rail schedule.

Don't forget, it's not like the old days when commerce was centered downtown near the rail station. Much, like in Columbus, have moved out to suburbia and outerbelts, thus leaving you with transportation needs when dumped off by the train.

With GPS, you have help driving the city even if you have never been there.

Nip this in the bud before more billions are wasted on another Ghost Train.
Taxed enough already

Twelve trains each way per day? With what? Nine people on each one?

Money will be raised in Ohio to pay for this 1.6 billion investment? How?

Franklin County taxpayers already pay a half -percent additional sales tax to subsidize COTA so the googocks can ride to Walmart. We are to pay for their trip to the Cubs and Sox games too?
