Re: Light Rail Systems And Routes In Other Cities

I will be in Milwaukee this week and plan on riding the street car. One thing I am disappointed is that it does not run by any of the 2 sports arenas. Its about 5/6 blocks away. Seems like a huge opportunity missed not putting it by arenas. It would be nice to park a mile away and take the streetca...

I often see both sides of this part of the street used for parking automobiles. The vacation request was on the 10/31 CPC ag...
