GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Greater Lafayette leaders are looking into new ways of transportation since the Hoosier State Line service cut.

They say bussing is still a viable option for traveling to Chicago or Indianapolis.

There are currently three bus services available in Lafayette. Greyhound, Hoosier Ride, and a new bus service called Our Bus.

All three pick-up and drop-off near the city bus terminal.

Arvid Olson, Greater Lafayette Commerce Chair of Transportation, said more transportation options are still in the works. He said with the city's large traveling population, more services are a necessity.

“With Purdue University here, with the desire for services like this, commuter-based services," said Olson. "We're going to continue to look at options that make it easy to get to Chicago, make it easy to get to Indianapolis."

Olson said it's sad to see the Hoosier State Line go.

“We still have a wide area of transportation even though we do regret the Hoosier State, that four times a week service north and south not being available at this time,” said Olson.

The Amtrak Cardinal train will continue riding through Lafayette three days a week.
