ARDMORE, OK -- The Texas Oklahoma Passenger Rail Study is holding public meetings for community input on potential rail routes and services.

A meeting was held in Ardmore Tuesday night giving residents a chance to look at the possible options the study is planning to move forward with.

Managers with the study are looking at rail route alternatives in the 850 mile corridor from Oklahoma City to South Texas.

They say so far there has been an enthusiasm for rail traffic.

"It's something that, I think a lot of people have had interest for a long time and it's building," said Mark Werner, study project manager. "And as we get more passenger rail service, the frequency that people need, and the on-time performance that people need, it'll make sense, it'll give people another option to travel."

If you missed the meeting, Werner still says you can participate online.
