ABSTRACT
The author argues that upgrading existing U.S. rail systems to higher speeds should be a priority over building true high-speed-rail corridors. He asserts that true high-speed rail, which is defined as exceeding 200 miles per hour (mph), is extremely expensive to build and the country does not have the funds for big, new spending programs, no matter how beneficial they might be. He also discusses how an affordable and good higher-speed rail can benefit most Americans.
