ABSTRACT: Development of the preliminary full build-out schedule is based on work that had been previously done in the Midwest Regional Rail Initiative Plan (June 2004) and updated by MDOT staff. Train performance calculator runs were used to confirm travel times. Updated ridership forecasts reflecting more recent market and demographic conditions were used to confirm schedule frequencies. Running times between Porter, Indiana and Pontiac, Michigan are based on the proposed Build Alternative improvements described in Chapter 2 of the Tier 1 EIS. The train schedule will be updated to reflect the time savings gained from the infrastructure improvements in the SOTL once a Preferred Route Alternative is selected and all of the proposed infrastructure improvements for the Corridor are confirmed with additional engineering analysis. The updated schedule will be included in the Service Development Plan
