A new report from the Nebraska Transit and Retail Advisory Council says that a proposed commuter rail between Omaha and Lincoln wouldn't be eligible for federal funding.
The report, submitted to state senators Tuesday, says there wouldn't be enough riders to qualify for U.S. government funding.
The study says the rail system would cost about $76 per rider. In order to get federal funds, that figure would have to be $50 or less.
A meeting to discuss the report with the Legislature's Transportation Committee will be scheduled for sometime in January.
