An M-1 Rail meeting will be happening later this afternoon.

The advisory board is expected to talk about the construction progress as the rail is expected to be up and running in the spring. 

One thing still being hammered out is the cost of a transfer to the rail.

The general cost for a ride is expected to be $1.50-- and cheaper if bought in bulk.

Hours it will run: Mon-Sat 6am-10pm and Sundays 8am-10pm - with longer hours during games and events downtown.

Once the M-1 Rail is up and running, we're told there will be 12 stops altogether along the 3.3 mile route. The rail is expected to travel at a speed of 35 mph.
