High Speed Rail Update

A friend of the blog tipped us off to a story the Des Moines press ran yesterday about a proposed high speed rail link from Chicago to the western edge of Iowa and eastern edge of Nebraska, with stops in the Quad Cities, Des Moines, and Council Bluffs along the way. With many Chicagoans having ties to the Hawkeye State (and vice versa), this seems like a great way to spur the adoption of mass transit across a large tract of the Midwest. Let’s hope there is the political will and funding required to make it a reality.
