Do Americans have confidence in high speed rail systems?



  1. 0 Votes

    In California, where a high speed rail system was on a state ballot, 58% approved the measure statewide. Nationwide there are mixed feelings. Many Americans are attached to their cars and yet many are tired of gridlock in major cities and would not mind focusing on other things during their daily commute rather than driving. However, probably the largest resistance to high speed rail is from airline and automobile lobbyists. They don’t want people to use their services less. Luckily Obama wants to develop high speed rail and has alloted $8 billion for it (2nd link below).
