Moline is located near the Iowa border directly west of Chicago.

Moline city administrator Lew Steinbrecher (stihn' BREKH-ur) says ticket prices will be comparable to parking in Chicago for a day. He also says the travel time to Chicago will be about the same.

The project is being funded largely by a $10 million federal grant. The state is contributing $5 million. The city is contributing $1.6 million and has agreed to provide at 150 parking spaces for the station.
