Go Faster - 

Future High Speed Transportation

Watch Close-up

Saving Time. 

That is what the Wisconsin High Speed Transportation Group is about. 

Around the world, new high speed transportation technologies are being developed whereby commuting to the office over 100 miles away takes less time that the commuter in Chicago spends in the car today. 

 

Bringing People Closer

Or the family going on a weekend holiday does not need to deal with the hassle and confusion of an airport or spend hours driving.  They need only show up at the station minutes before, and in minutes be speeding towards grandma's at 150 mph in unparralled speed and comfort.

 

Our Mission

​Sadly, the United States has fallen behind in such technologies as high speed rail, magnetic levitating trains, and even may even miss the Hyperloop.

Also, known as the Badger Rail Society at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the mission of the Wisconsin High-Speed Transportation Group is to redefine how people travel in the USA...and most of all save people time.

Real Estate Development

Fast transportation builds big cities, but the real value of high-speed transportation infrastructure lies in the surrounding real estate.

Internships &
Badgerloop Feasibility

It's not about the underlying technology... 

It's about America being

at the forefront of high-speed transportation innovation.
