Posted by Infra on Thursday, January 20th, 2011

From US High Speed Rail Association:

High Speed Rail Summit - Washington DC

Be part of this important high speed rail summit! Hear from the new incoming Congress and the Obama Administration about plans to step up the national high speed rail program. Hear about the many challenges with launching a major new infrastructure project of this scale. Listen to senior elected officials discuss the importance of maintaining the ‘political sustainability’ needed to get it built. Hear from political and business leaders where this program is going, how money will be rolled out, and where the money will continue to come from to pay for these new systems.

Learn about the rapidly growing support among the business community across multiple sectors for high speed rail in America. Hear from experts about the conservative case for a major investment in HSR. This is the event to be part of in the nation’s capital – at the center of the action in high speed rail!

Be part of the high speed rail movement sweeping across America!
