The mayor of Columbus says, she's forming a commission to push for regional passenger rail service to the west Georgia city.
Mayor Teresa Tomlinson has put several community and business leaders on the commission.
She hopes the panel will help efforts to build a Columbus to Atlanta rail link, one of city leaders' top priorities.
The head of Georgians for Passenger Rail says, first regional passenger rail line in the state most will be an Atlanta to Macon line, running through Griffin.
That line has been in the works for many years.
