High-Speed Rail for the US, Finally!

Only the HSR lines in California will compare with China’s new HSR lines in speed. However, many of the other HSR lines are anticipated to be very similar to Europe’s best. At these speeds, rail will become much more competitive with air and automobile travel in the US.

This is a good start. But the funding needs to continue, especially through a long-overdue, new Transportation Bill.
