Following a community meeting in November 2011, Mayor Teresa Tomlinson named a thirty person commission to study the feasibility of a passenger rail line from Columbus to Atlanta, Georgia. The Mayor's Commission on Passenger Rail is chaired by State Representative Calvin Smyre and Columbus attorney and rail enthusiast Edward Hudson and is comprised of business leaders, transportation officials, elected officials, and interested citizens.
Since its first meeting on January 4, 2012, the Mayor's Commission on Passenger Rail has made great strides by arranging to have the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) include Columbus, Georgia in its state rail plan. Also, the Commission was successful in gaining the GDOT's permission to access $300,000 in federal L230 transportation study funds to conduct a full feasibility study of the Columbus, Georgia intercity passenger rail line. The Commission expects the City to publish a Request for Proposal for a Rail Feasibility Study later this summer.
Meetings are on the first Wednesday of each month at 9:00 a.m. and are open to the public. There will be no July meeting.
