Indianapolis pulls future support for Amtrak line

INDIANAPOLIS – City officials in Indianapolis have cast the future of an Amtrak passenger line between Indianapolis and Chicago into doubt after deciding not to provide any additional money to subsidize that line.

Indianapolis leaders had signed onto a one-year deal last year to provide $300,000 for the Hoosier State line, which runs four times a week between Indianapolis and Chicago, with stops along the way.

But Indiana Department of Transportation official Bob Zier told the Journal and Courier (http://on.jconline.com/1l0QyEO ) Indianapolis officials aren’t interested in providing any additional money. The city’s decision comes after the state announced that a private vendor had been selected to run the line.

Indianapolis Department of Public Works spokeswoman Stephanie Wilson said the city might reconsider its decision if that vendor significantly improves service on the line.
