Midwest High Speed Rail
Doyle’s push for Wisconsin’s prominent inclusion in a Midwest high-speed rail network is great for everyone. In December, my wife and I had to sit on the O’Hare tarmac for two hours before our connecting flight to Milwaukee was ultimately canceled because Mitchell couldn’t handle the snowfall — I’m sure everyone has had a short flight like that at some point in time that just didn’t make sense to them.
Once a viable rail network is created, piddly flights like these will be gone forever, allowing airlines to focus on more profitable and efficient flights of longer distances. HSR is a perfect fit for the distances between most Midwestern cities.
