So does this mean we cannot board the train while it is in route as it was discussed during the conference call? I mean is it really going to matter all that much if the tickets say that we are getting on at Dearborn, but we get on at Jackson or Kalamazoo instead? 
Although now that I think about it a bit more, an individual ticket from Lansing might be about the same price once you factor in the cost getting to and from the train station. When I checked on the price for Lansing, it was about $260 which would be about the same or even a little less than taking the Michigan Flyer to Jackson to board the train with a group ticket. If this is the case, then I’m not sure why anyone from Lansing would want to bother with the additional hassle with the group ticket if they can get one from Lansing at the same price.
