Central US Transit


When most people think of the central United States they think of America's bread basket and farms. But there are several large cities that support rail based transit.  The biggest transit city is surprisingly enough, Dallas, TX. This is proof that a car oriented area can support a transit system! However, Denver and Salt Lake City also have large systems.
