TOD vs. Parking for High-Speed Rail Stations
"The argument over where Madison, Wisconsin's new Amtrak station should be located seems straight out of the 1970s, with WisDOT ignoring over 25 years of success in planning for transit-oriented development, and instead opting for an easy site at the Dane County airport that offers a big parking lot, but no pedestrian or bicycle access, and only a single bus route. The concept hangs its hat on the limited demand for plane-to-train transfers, calling it multi-modal, while ignoring the more important modes that would actually serve Madison residents and visitors to the city."
