The high speed rail is the US future

August 1, 2010

High Speed, Clean

Do you know? Over 71 percent of oil in US has been consumed by transportation, by our cars?

High speed rail powered by clean energy is the US future.

High speed rail is commonly used for passenger rail transport that operates significantly faster than the normal speed of rail traffic. It operates at the speed of 350 – 450 KM/hour.  The rank of total network length around world is shown as follows, source:

1. China, 6920 KM

2. Japan, 2469 KM

3. France, 1700 KM

….

#. US, 734 KM

Which states in US plan to build high speed rail?

First of all, federal already planed to invest $13 billion for building high speed rail in 4.2009.

California state is a strongly supporting  for building high speed rail. It just announced that CA will seek $1 billion support from federal for building the high speed rail. It was also estimated that building high speed rail can create 50,000 construction job per year.

Florida is another state, which believe high speed rail is the US’s future. With the latest $1.25 billion federal budget, Florida will build the Tampa-Orlando-Miami high speed rail corridor.

Mid west high speed rail association plans to build 220-mph bullet train routes to put 35 million people within 3 hours of Chicago. It will build the first demonstration route completed by 2020. The association will also enhance Amtrak service by 2020 to run at the speeds of at least 90 miles per hour.

South high speed rail association also plans to build southeast high speed rail corridor between Richmond, VA, and Raleigh, and NC.

In below, it shows the future high speed rail map, source.

    It is hard for high speed rail to work out in the U.S.
    1. High speed rail is against the interests of oil and car industries. The two industires have big political influence.
    2. High speed rail is long-term investment. Only govenement have the capabilities to raise enough capitals to initial the project. However, many states will be short of capitals for a while. Those states could plan high speed rail projects. When and how they can make them are questions.
    3. The cities of the U.S. are not densely populated as cities in China or Japan. High speed rail might not be an efficient trasportation here. Just try out Amtrak once, you will have some ideas about the take-up rate of long-distance train transportation.

      Susie, I agree with you for the first two points.
      But have you heard of the vactrain? Although just a hype for now, it is likely to change everything that people are accustomed to. It is especially good for long-distance non-stop travels, so that there would not be too many accelerations and decelerations that are the most inefficient part of a railway travel.

        There is a team in the Southwest Jiaotong University of China is trying to turn the theory of vactrain into practice. I think high speed rail is benefit-cost efficient for mass population transportation. However, highways and cars have make the population dispersed in the United States.

    Thanks for some facts. We’re having the same debate in Australia – also a big country, in love with our cars. Let’s hope we can find some political will! Keep up the good work, Richard

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  101. October 3, 2011 6:35 pm
