    Today's Canton Repository shares the possibility that streetcars could be carrying passengers between downtown and the airport with stops at the Football Hall of Fame Village in between by 2026.

    Former W&LE trackage currently exists under the ownership of Akron's metropolitan transit service we (Metro).

    A consultant shared the latest version of a concept to establish train service from Akron-Canton Airport to downtown Canton.

    It would have been nice for the article to include a map of the proposed route, and maybe a few 'artists concept' drawings.

    I wish them luck.

    Hopefully if this line is built, it will actually go INTO the airport. Lots of time they don't and end up being money not so well spent.

    Article indicating more UNKNOWN's than known, biggest being potential ridership.

    for as many times as the "3C" passenger rail has been proposed between Cincy, Columbus, and Cleveland and subsequently passed over (and as much sense as it would make to actually build!!), hopefully this project gets greenlighted.

    Totally dig the design, too. Looks great imo.
