The proposed WALLY commuter rail between Howell and Ann Arbor is one step closer to becoming a reality. Transportation Authority officials are launching a major study in 2014 to completely assess what the project would entail.  The study will allow the Transportation Authority to estimate costs, pin down station locations and figure ridership estimates. The study is being funded by a $650,000 grant from the Federal Highway Administration and could take up to 18 months to complete. The WALLY would utilize existing freight tracks to carry passengers from Howell into Ann Arbor in the morning and back to Howell at the end of the work day. Planned stops include Genoa Township, Whitmore Lake and Plymouth Road in Ann Arbor.
