“The Present and Future of High Speed Rail in the US”
Dozens of countries around the world have constructed thousands of miles of High-Speed Rail (HSR) over the previous six decades. The US was an early adopter of the technology, but deployment stalled following the construction of the interstate highway network in the 60’s. Things are changing, however. This talk will cover the benefits of HSR, the history of HSR in the United States, and HSR systems or projects under consideration, under construction, or currently operating.
