Fast Trains from the Twin Cities to Chicago

Imagine a safe, convenient, comfortable, productive trip from the Twin Cities to Chicago. One where you avoid traffic jams and road construction.One where you avoid long security lines and tarmac delays. One where you are free to get up and move about the cabin anytime you would like. Read, work, visit with family and friends. Regular, daily, high-speed trains, a competitive transportation alternative, could carry 1.7 million trips by 2030. Will you climb aboard?

Travel Demand is High

More than a million people travel annually between Chicago and the Twin Cities by air; more than 10 million by car. Those numbers are growing, and it's no wonder. Minnesota is home to 20 Fortune 500 companies, and the number of jobs in the Twin Cities metropolitan area is expected to grow by 34 percent by 2040.

Benefits are Great

High-speed rail is a safe, competitive transportation alternative. It saves money and the environment by increasing freight and passenger rail capacity, avoiding more expensive cars and trucks while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. And it grows Minnesota’s economy. High-speed rail could lead to $2.3 billion in economic benefits and 1,600 permanent jobs in Minnesota in addition to the 15,000 construction jobs needed to complete the project.
