Intentional inconvenience, acknowledged::
The WisDOT web page on rail service - - since it cannot tout the development-boosting Amtrak extensions or SE commuter rail operations killed by Walker and the GOP=led Legislature - - is heavily-devoted to "motorcoach" connections to the few train stations left:
Amtrak thruway motorcoach connections provide service to additional Wisconsin communities. A combination rail/bus ticket can be booked through Amtrak. Thruway rail/bus connections can be made at the Milwaukee intermodal station, the Columbus, Portage and St. Paul, Minnesota Amtrak stations.
To purchase tickets or for route information call Amtrak at 1-800-USA-RAIL (1-800-872-7245), or the Amtrak web site.
