Here my train a-comin'

. August 23, 2013.

In case you didn't know — the MiTrain, a planned regional train that will connect Ann Arbor and Detroit with stops at Ypsilanti, Dearborn and the Detroit Airport, is scheduled to commence with regular commuter service in 2014. The service proposes to run four round-trips during each weekday and three daily round-trips on weekends. A full ride from Ann Arbor to Detroit will take about 50 minutes, making the train a great option for students and workers seeking an easy commute. The train will feature bi-level gallery cars that were refurbished by Great Lakes Central Railroad and will include storage space for passenger's bicycles.
