Exciting advancements are taking place towards an interconnected, high-velocity rail system throughout the United States. The visionary American High-Speed Rail Act by Congressman Seth Moulton is gaining momentum, with an increasing number of representatives (now 25 co-sponsors!) acknowledging its potential.

This ambitious $205 billion endeavor has garnered enthusiastic backing from the U.S. High-Speed Rail Coalition. “The escalating support for this legislation is fantastic news,” remarked Andy Kunz, CEO of the Coalition. Their dedication underlines their commitment to realizing this project.

The act proposes a substantial investment – $41 billion annually for a span of five years – to drive the planning and construction of high-speed rail infrastructure. This not only sets the stage for speedier and more sustainable travel options but also creates enticing economic prospects.

The bill encourages the participation of the private sector through investment incentives while ensuring stringent labor standards within the sector. Moreover, it prioritizes the welfare of local communities by fostering the growth of affordable housing and commercial spaces alongside the new rail routes.

The recent allocation of $6.1 billion in federal grants by President Biden represents a significant milestone, marking the largest federal funding for high-speed rail to date. This includes support for the Brightline West project, aiming to link Las Vegas and Southern California by the 2028 Olympics, and California’s innovative solar-powered express train connecting Los Angeles to San Francisco.
