    US Cities with direct light rail/subway transportation to downtown area

    What US cities have a direct light rail/subway connections to their airports?

    I can think of:

    Boston
    NYC
    Phoenix
    Miami

    I think St Louis has the Metro Link.

    KC only hits up Union Station. Not sure if it's worth much yet.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"

    St. Louis does.
    Chicago, too. Indeed, I flew up to Midway, took the El to O'hare and brought my Danish cousins here via return trip to Midway and Southwest airlines to the 'Ville.

    Seattle does. I took it from the airport and back during the 2015 National Conference.

    DC/Baltimore from BWI and National. Dulles is in the works, not sure if that is complete yet.

    Newark, NJ does too. Newark Liberty Airport has an "Air Train" with connections to Newark, New York City, (and points beyond) via New Jersey Transit and Amtrak. By transferring to the Long Island Railroad or NYC Subway in Manhattan, you can even get to JFK airport.
