An interactive map from Midwest High-Speed Rail predicts the travel time between stations in the Midwest using high-speed rail. On April 16, 2009, President Obama announced his “Vision for High Speed Rail.” This vision includes the development of high-speed train lines in at least 10 regions across the country, including the Midwest with a major hub network centered in Chicago.
About Midwest High-Speed Rail:
“The Midwest is working as one region to connect its residents through improved high-speed and intercity passenger rail service. Connecting the metropolitan areas of the region, such as Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, Des Moines, Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Madison, Minneapolis- St Paul and St. Louis, to each other through rail will create new jobs, stimulate private investment, expand transportation options and reduce our environmental impact”.
