There is no single spot that can feasibly serve walk-up passengers of more than 5% of the passenger base in the metro area.I think we're going to have to agree to disagree. I think Elkhart and South Bend should continue to be downtown walkup stations. Notre Dame students and others without cars should not be forced to go to Mishawaka.
Also, please note the current station is smack in the center of gang territory. Not super inviting to anybody, poor or not.

I'm no fan of the Bendix stop, but the fact that it's in gang territory doesn't change my opinion. Bloods and Cryps are not going to be sitting outside guns ablazing waiting to kill 30 people who come off the train. That's a creation of the fear of poor neighborhoods and it's an invalid argument.
