    AGR point redemption

    Parking at MKA - Milwaukee Airport Station?

    I used the MKA parking last october when I traveled to WAS on the CL . My round trip was 5 days long I was able to park right at the station . There were also shuttles to the airport itself which you could request by pressing a call button . A very nice and efficient facility .

The fact is that they ARE critics of some of Amtrak's cost accounting and Amtrak's obvious bias towards state sponsored short haul trains and the NEC .

    comfort of amtrak beds (mattress)in sleepers
