Maine’s latest passenger rail expansion from Portland to Brunswick is not yet completed, but the state is already looking at places to expand. As part of a preliminary feasibility study, state officials are looking at how many passengers might use a new service between Portland and Montreal. The study will look at various routes, how many trips are possible in a day, and how much tickets should cost. According to the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, officials have been holding meetings with two rail lines, local chambers of commerce, city councils, and the public to get feedback.
