Next Stop, Madison: Selecting Our Future Passenger Rail Station Location

The City of Madison's Passenger Rail Station Identification Study will evaluate options and identify a recommendation for a passenger rail station location that would be served by a planned extension of Amtrak's Hiawatha route. The existing Hiawatha route connects Chicago and Milwaukee and the extension to Madison is part of an overall expansion of Wisconsin’s passenger rail network which also includes new connections in northeast and northwest Wisconsin and is supported by the Federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.  LIZ CALLIN, City of Madison's  Transportation Planner, will provide an update on the station location study, discuss how a passenger rail connection could benefit our community, and outline next steps.
