The plans for the commuter line are running at a painstakingly slow pace. However, some routes have been determined. We were planning on having a Dearborn-Detroit train, but you can go ahead and run it. You can also run the rest you listed.

Sounds good. Are these for only sports games or are these normal routes?

Our trains will most likely be running by then, but you can keep yours running even when ours start up. We aren't planning trains by games, instead regular schedules. Our trains will not match up with game times (if they do, it's coincidence), so you can keep yours running to give passengers accurate times to go to the games and come home.

YOU have been able to grab a spot when YOU have decided to do so? What, are you driving now at the tender age of 13?
MQTs tricycle fits in most of the spots :lol:

No theyre in Detroit, sitting on the interchange, you can pick them up when you wish to. We need all the space we can get in Cleveland.
