This study by Rockefeller Foundation-grantee America 2050 identifies the high-speed rail corridors with the greatest potential to attract ridership in each of the nation's megaregions, identifies the specific conditions that generate ridership demand, and scores each corridor according to strength in those areas. The top performing corridors in each region determined to have the greatest potential demand for high-speed rail ridership include corridors such as: New York-Washington, DC; Chicago-Milwaukee; Los Angeles-San Diego; Tampa (via Orlando) to Miami; Dallas-Houston; Atlanta-Birmingham; Portland-Seattle; and Denver-Pueblo.
America 2050 is a national initiative to develop an infrastructure plan for the United States that will position America for equitable, sustainable and prosperous economic growth. The strategies it develops anticipate the challenges of rapid population growth, climate change, mobility, and ensuring national prosperity in a changing global economy.
