Providing Easy Access to Hundreds of Miles of Affordable Communities
hsr creates affordable housing
new access to vast areas
High speed rail levels out real estate hot spots by opening access to hundreds of miles of smaller and more affordable cities and towns. A short, easy commute by HSR can provide access to numerous second-tier entire communities that are affordable.
lowers housing costs
Housing is automatically more affordable just by being located further from large cities and job centers. With HSR creating access to so much affordable housing, the effect will be a large increase in supply, leading to a leveling of supply/demand.
lowers transport costs
Commuting and traveling by high speed train is far cheaper than transport by car or airplane due to the extreme efficiency, and high capacity of high speed rail. With HSR as an option, families can own less cars, saving even more money.
