President Obama Support for High Speed Rail Continues

High Speed Rail Canada strongly supports President Obama in his plans to continue modernizing passenger rail in the United States of America.

In his State of the Union address the President stated, "Within 25 years, our goal is to give 80 percent of Americans access to high-speed rail. This could allow you to go places in half the time it takes to travel by car. For some trips, it will be faster than flying — without the pat-down.As we speak, routes in California and the Midwest are already underway."

We would hope the Government of Canada develops a policy and plan for the future of Canada's aging passenger rail system.
