ABSTRACT
The article discusses the factors affecting the viability of high speed rail lines in the U.S. Factors include the level of expected riders, costs and public benefits. It notes that high speed rail attracts riders in dense, highly populated corridors where there is traffic congestion. It cites the recommendation of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) for the Secretary of Transportation to develop a strategic vision of how speed rail will fit into the national transportation system.
