USHSR News… This IS the Silver Bullet!

In life we are always hearing “there is no silver bullet” for those looking for quick easy solutions to problems.

According to Webster, Silver Bullet means:  “something that acts as a magical weapon; especially :  one that instantly solves a long-standing problem.

Based on this definition, high speed rail is even better than a Silver Bullet because it will not only solve a long-standing problem, but 4 of them simultaneously! So HSR is Silver Bullet squared!

This IS the Silver Bullet_
High speed rail is the best transportation “deal of the century” offering up 4 major solutions with 1 investment. No other mode of transport even comes close! In fact, the other modes make all 4 problems worse. Its time for America to get serious and build the future while permanently solving our problems.

#1 Energy Solution | #1 Climate Solution | #1 Safety Solution | #1 Capacity Solution

 HUGE CAPACITY WITH HIGH SPEED RAIL
Transportation capacity is one of the most serious problems we face with our current modes totally overloaded to the point of near paralysis. We need the third middle option!
Huge capacity with high speed rail
A single HSR line transports up to 20,000 people per hour (more than a 10-lane freeway plus several airports), without delays or congestion. The addition of HSR to America’s transportation mix would improve mobility across all modes and gets America out of endless congestion!
HSR delivers very high capacity transport
ITS TIME TO BUILD THE FUTURE! 
USHSR national vision map
Building a national HSR network across America will:
  • Create millions of jobs across multiple sectors (manufacturing, construction, development, etc.)
  • Create more than $100 Billion in real estate opportunities at the stations
  • Launch the next national real estate development boom
  • Create a whole new high-capacity, fast transportation system for America
  • Better connect the economies of our cities large and small
  • Stimulate tourism and travel nationwide
  • Reduce congestion on our highways and runways
  • Cut our foreign trade deficit by hundreds of billions (from purchasing foreign oil)
  • Cut our oil dependency and carbon output on a grand scale quickly
  • Create the first business-friendly form of transportation encouraging ease of travel, fast boarding, no security lines, comfortable and spacious work spaces, and reliable schedules
  • Make America super efficient with fast, effective transportation without delays or congestion
A complete transportation system
An integral part of a complete system, high speed rail can carry enormous capacity! A single HSR line transports up to 20,000 people per hour (more than a 10-lane freeway), without delays or congestion. The addition of HSR to America’s transportation mix would remake it into a complete system. HSR fills the middle range of passenger trips in the 100-1,500 mile range, while shifting aviation to its most efficient range of passenger trips of 1,000 miles or longer, and cars covering their most efficient range under 100 miles.

This improves mobility across all transportation modes and gets America out of endless congestion
Trains are the future, get on board!
