LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Public meetings are planned on proposed new passenger rail service that could connect Detroit, Lansing, Grand Rapids and Holland.

The first of three rounds of public meetings starts Tuesday for the Detroit-Holland Passenger Rail Ridership and Cost Estimate Study, also known as the Coast-to-Coast Passenger Rail Study.

Meetings are scheduled Tuesday in Lansing, Thursday in Kent County’s Cascade Township, June 15 in Grand Rapids, June 18 in Detroit and June 22 in Ann Arbor. They’re to provide an opportunity for the public to share ideas and input.

The events are hosted by Michigan By Rail. The study is being managed by the Michigan Environmental Council in partnership with the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority and the Michigan Department of Transportation. A final report is expected in December.
