What We Are Doing

What we’re doing and why


The Northern Indiana Passenger Rail Association (NIPRA) is dedicated to bringing customer-focused passenger rail service back to Fort Wayne and the communities that make up the northern part of the Hoosier State. We believe that a healthy, thriving transportation system that gives options to northern Indiana residents should include passenger rail along with highway and air travel. Such options, whether you travel or not, will mean a stronger economy, new jobs, enhanced security, a cleaner environment, and an overall better quality of life.


NIPRA is working with local elected and appointed officials and business leaders in our region to promote the return of passenger rail service to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Part of that vision includes showcasing the refurbished Baker Street Train Station and the significant resident feedback generated in support of passenger train service in and out of Fort Wayne.
