Perryman train study down, not out

(Continued)

CHICKASHA —

The study also includes the development of hubs along the commuter train line that would connect more rural towns and regions to stations in larger cities. Beyond this, Perryman said he is hopeful of expanding outside of Oklahoma to reach the Northwest Texas area and up into Missouri and Kansas.

"I am encouraged by the cooperation of the House Transportation Committee and the many calls and eMails of support that I have received for this project," Perryman said. "Based on the excitement that has been generated by this proposal, I believe that passenger rail between Tulsa and OKC and Lawton will soon be placed on the fast track toward development and that cities and counties along that route will soon see improvements in the way that they can obtain grants and loans to complement the passenger rail with their own commuter plans.
