Getting TC on Track

Do you want a train from Traverse City to Ann Arbor? 

Learn how rail is taking off in the state and what we can do to make a connection to southern Michigan a reality. 

When: Monday, February 16 at 7 p.m.

Where: State Theatre, Traverse City

What: In 2012, Michigan created its first State Rail Plan, a $10 billion strategy for modernizing the state’s rail system. Since then, Michigan has been accelerating rail projects at a pace it hasn’t seen since the 19th century. And someday, we may see trains to Traverse City.

Join transportation leaders from across the state to learn about new rail projects, including the M-1 Rail project in Detroit, the Washtenaw-Livingston (WALLY) commuter line in Ann Arbor—and plans to explore a passenger train connection to Traverse City.

Stay after the discussion for a free showing of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Strangers On a Train.”
