At a hearing in Pittsburgh today, Mr. Altmire, D-McCandless, described Pittsburgh to Cleveland as a "missing link" that, if filled, would establish Pittsburgh as the hub of a network stretching across the upper Midwest. He said he has submitted the proposal for inclusion in the multiyear surface transportation bill that Congress is expected to consider this year.
I'd like to see a rail link between the Pittsburgh, Akron-Canton, and Cleveland airports. That would attract more businesses to the Tech Belt. Furthermore, such a plan ties in better with other visions for regional mass transit.
