I find it interesting that after the last meeting in Daytona Beach when Amtrak said they could not commit to a date when they could bring passenger service to the FEC, community leaders have fallen strangely silent on this issue. Since that time we have seen Sunrail begin service and All aboard Florida making great progress toward getting passenger service going. So I ask what are community leaders along the FEC doing to explore other options with rail passenger service?

In Stuart we see the community doing all they can to derail All Aboard Florida. This effort is being leas by a small vocal group if misinformed people spreading fear.

In St Augustine the North Florida TPO spent money for a study to find the best site for an Inter-model hub. The findings of that study were left open ended with no action. The City Commission passed a resolution to support commuter rail between Jacksonville and St. Augustine working with JTA. That now also appears to have become a dead end with James Boyle taking a job in Alaska.

What is happening in other communities along the FEC? Have any of the leaders stepped up to the plate to see what can be done to get passenger rail services for their communities? The time is not to get on board and make something happen. Could it simply be that this is an election year and these elected officials are more interested in being on the campaign trail than they are interested in finishing the job they were elected to do in the first place?

Passenger rail service is happening on the FEC with All Aboard Florida it is time that our community leaders open their eyes and get on board and make sure our communities are ready.

Tallahassee has been without passenger service since 2005 when Katrina roared through some of the Gulf states. There has been hopes of Amtrak re-instating service,but nothing has happened. As much as I'd like to see an increase of passenger train service,I'm not getting my hopes up until I see All Aboard Florida become a reality and succeed. I'm behind the idea and concept. And by the way,gas prices have dropped to $2.91/9 here in Tallahassee.

I find it interesting
that after the last meeting in Daytona Beach when Amtrak
said they could not commit to a date when they could bring
passenger service to the FEC, community leaders have fallen
strangely silent on this issue. Since that time we have seen
Sunrail begin service and All aboard Florida making great
progress toward getting passenger service going. So I ask
what are community leaders along the FEC doing to explore
other options with rail passenger service?

In Stuart we see the community
doing all they can to derail All Aboard Florida. This effort
is being leas by a small vocal group if misinformed people
spreading fear.

In St
Augustine the North Florida TPO spent money for a study to
find the best site for an Inter-model hub. The findings of
that study were left open ended with no action. The City
Commission passed a resolution to support commuter rail
between Jacksonville and St. Augustine working with JTA.
That now also appears to have become a dead end with James
Boyle taking a job in Alaska.

What is happening in other communities along
the FEC? Have any of the leaders stepped up to the plate to
see what can be done to get passenger rail services for
their communities? The time is not to get on board and make
something happen. Could it simply be that this is an
election year and these elected officials are more
interested in being on the campaign trail than they are
interested in finishing the job they were elected to do in
the first place?

Passenger
rail service is happening on the FEC with All Aboard Florida
it is time that our community leaders open their eyes and
get on board and make sure our communities are
ready.View Post on
