High Speed Rail: Learning from Service Start-ups, Prospects for Increased Industry Investment, and Federal Oversight Plans (ISBN: 9781437935196)
by Susan A. Fleming
(Paperback, 40 pages, 2010, $25)

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) and subsequent appropriations have dramatically increased federal funds available for high speed intercity passenger rail from $120 million in FY 2008 and FY 2009 combined to $10.5 billion available in FY 2010. Other issues, such as developing industry capacity to supply rail equipment and fostering multiyear public support for such systems must be resolved.

This report reviewed: (1) how states started or improved passenger rail services in the recent past; (2) rail industry plans to accommodate the increased passenger rail investments; and (3) Federal Railroad Administration plans to oversee the use of federal intercity passenger rail funds. Charts and tables.
