TOLEDO, Ohio — The Toledo City Council has agreed to fund its share of a study on restoring passenger service between Toledo and Detroit, WTOL-TV reports.

The ordinance passed Wednesday allows Toledo Mayor Wade Kapzsukiewicz to enter into agreements for a study, and approved spending $30,000 from the Division of Transportation general-fund budget.

The Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments had previously approved $20,000 for the study, expected to cost $50,000. [See “Toledo group to study restoration of passenger service to Detroit,” Trains News Wire, Oct. 31, 2018.]

The Toledo-Detroit route has been without Amtrak service since 1995.
