High speed rail offers the best option for providing fast, reliable, green transportation for America. High speed rail is a proven system in use all around the world delivering benefits to billions of people every day. High speed rail is the fastest way to reduce carbon from the transport sector while providing a whole new fast, easy option to get around.
High speed trains outperform both flying and driving combined in every measure - capacity, mobility, convenience, speed, safety, efficiency, cost, energy consumption, profitability, national security, carbon footprint, physical footprint, economic development, smart growth, and more.
A network of high speed trains can carry more passengers than cars and airplanes combined using a fraction of the energy, and with no delays.
High Speed Rail is the only viable transport solution capable of reducing carbon, congestion, costs, accidents, and energy consumption all at the same time! No other transport option does any of this.
