Cleveburgh by rail

Random transit post: I came across this short piece on an inter-regional rail idea called The Ohio Regional Rail Plan that includes Pittsburgh. Granted it's based in Cleveland, but still it's interesting. It's a little less ambitious (and thus a bit more realistic) than the Midwest Regional Rail Initiative which also envisioned greater rail links to Pittsburgh.

There have been various proto-ideas floated for more intra-regional rail in Pennsylvania, but I am unclear where any of those plans stand at the moment.

Looking at the prices in the plan, I can't figure out why someone would want to take a train for only slightly less then a plane, yet at three times the travel time. I think the projected passengers are way out of whack.

America's air service may be overtaxed, but it's really no wonder why Amtrak is struggling so much, especially on long haul transportation.

For short haul trips, we're too used to driving everywhere we need to go. Plus, you don't have to rent a car once you get there!
