But there’s a lot to consider before moving ahead on easing the commute. First, the bill does not allow for a light rail option, meaning commuters would be taking an express bus. Second, officials will have to weigh the cost, time of travel and number of potential riders in determining if it’s even feasible. And finally, the county’s residents will have to decide how much they are willing to pay for it.
There’s a lot of questions left to answer. But giving voters the option of a mass transit system would be an important step in making the daily grind a little less hectic for Madison County and other Indiana workers.
