Help!!!!! I'm moving to Terre Haute, IN for a job in Union hospital. Is there any place in the city that I can live in that is NOT near a train track? Seriously, what do they ship there that causes them to need 50 million train tracks? Does anyone know the schedule or where I could possibly look to find the train schedule? If I could plot my commute based on the train schedule, it could be a big help. Or, is there a nearby town that I could live in with a reasonable commute (and not crash and burn trying to get to work in th wee hours in the snow)? Are the roads well maintained in the event of snow? I'm from Georgia and when it snowed 2 inches here in 2014 kids were stranded on the freeway on school buses. People were sleeping in the grocery and drug stores. I'll be on call for work and I don't know what to expect if I have to venture out in the wee hours of the night.

I just moved out of Terre haute and good luck.. trains will make you late i waited 25 minutes when they disconnect trains. Places itself is full of drunks and nothing to do . Best bet is to live next to work. They have alot of freight for mfg around the area. But i personally went there for a job and left in dec 2015 after a year and a half of being there and didn't really meet anyone? It a really boring place i usually went north or to indy for the weekend. Srs look into laffeyette,in and save the money from moving to th.

I have a contract and plan to be there a few years, so I guess I shall be close to work just to be on the safe side. I hope the trains don't come at night. I'm single, so the lack of social activities is not good news!

That's good to here hopefully you know someone if not. It's not the end of the world. Personally i hated how i couldn't see my friends or family. Yeah that was what really stunk the most is that there was nothing to do for someone who doesn't drink or smoke. Maybe since your a lady it maybe a whole different experience than a guy? Well oh well i'm on to bigger and better things at the moment! Feel free to ask me anything i know pretty much any area in town because of my old job. But let me know how the move goes. Would love to here your experience!

Check out the area north of Collet Park. You have pretty easy access to northside businesses, no tracks to cross to get to work, and the 3rd street overpass to get you to the south side.
