Nationwide high speed rail map has Milwaukee as key stop


Bobby Tanzilo introduced you to the Milwaukee subway map last month.

Now there's a nationwide rail map that's making the rounds and Milwaukee's a key stop on this vision for high speed rail in the United States.

Our transportation system – roads, sidewalks, streetcars, rail and more – needs to improve and what better way than updating this infrastructure that's in many areas more than 100 years old.

This new map was created by Alfred Twu, and is really just that a map.

Well, maybe a map with a dream.

Interesting. Research says high speed rail is a quicker way to travel for any trip 4.5 hours or less. If hopping on this to go to Vegas, or Tampa, or anywhere in between is going to be cheaper and just as fast as flying... count me in.
