Light rail rumors

Crain's Detroit reports again on rumored plans to build a privately-financed light rail line along Woodward. They first broke the story last week. Most of the details are still secret -- like who might foot the bill -- but it's exciting nevertheless.

This semi-secret proposal differs from the study currently being conducted by the Detroit Department of Transportation to bring rapid transit to the city. That study, called Detroit Transit Options for Growth, is following federal guidelines and would be publicly financed. My hunch is that DDOT's study is still the city's surest bet.
