TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – INDOT is asking for proposals that could partially privatize the Hoosier State Line.

The Indiana Department of Transportation has published a request for proposals to improve the line, that runs from Indianapolis to Chicago four days a week.

The state and some local governments, including Tippecanoe County and the cities of Lafayette and West Lafayette, have agreed to keep the line running for one year.

INDOT wants to improve the service by increasing the number of passengers and decreasing operating costs. They hope this can be done by opening its operation to competition from private operators. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
