From UIC Highspeed 2012:
“The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) is excited to be hosting the UIC 8th World Congress on High-Speed Rail and we look forward to welcoming the world to Philadelphia and the United States – July 10-13, 2012.
As America reshapes our transportation options to meet the challenges of the 21st Century, UIC’s decision to hold the World Congress here will go a long way in helping the United States gather the critical information and expertise to advance high-speed rail.
The United States is experiencing unprecedented population growth and demand for high-speed rail and high-performance rail is enormous. It will create quality jobs, spur economic development, and be a catalyst for a better quality of life.
By attending UIC HIGHSPEED 2012, all of us share a momentous opportunity to advance high-speed rail and its forward-reaching benefits in the United States and the world.”
