Michigan By Rail

This summer and fall, the Michigan Environmental Council, the Michigan Association of Railroad Passengers and partner organizations will convene a series of public forums throughout the state to help Michigan citizens discuss their vision for the state’s passenger and freight rail system.

At the first forum in Royal Oak on June 14, 70 people joined us to map out what they're looking for in a modern rail system.

The Michigan by Rail public forums include:
  • An overview of the state’s existing rail system
  • An interactive rail mapping session
  • A discussion of public financing issues for rail projects and service
  • A statewide vision for freight, intercity passenger and commuter rail
The Michigan Department of Transportation is in the early stages of putting Michigan’s rail plan together. Your participation and input is vital for a successful state rail plan.
