The Doylet RR: Goofy Station Blues

Even in Madistan, people get it.

...Advocates of a stop closer to Madison’s downtown argue the station should be built near East Washington Avenue and First Street. Troy Thiel, a Madison real estate agent and member of Campaign for Yahara Station, said it makes more sense to build the stop at that intersection.

...“People want to get off the train and be able to walk to their destination or have reasonably affordable fast transit,” he said. “You drop people off at Dane County Regional Airport and there’s nothing to walk to and not even a direct bus line to the Capitol.”

We mentioned that, as did others.

But the monumental $800++Million waste continues.
