If I understand Nexus' list correctly, you'd also need to add the South Bend streetcar (10,000 daily riders), the Metra extension to Rockford (20,000 daily), and the new Racine subway (40,000). What's that, you say? None of those are actually proposed and I'm just making up the ridership? Correct.

I'm all for transit fantasies, but let's keep them separate from questions about reality.
