CFS Report To Congress - September 1997
This commercial feasibility study (CFS) report examines the economics of bringing high-speed ground transportation (HSGT) to well-populated groups of cities throughout the United States. The intention is to draw nationwide-not corridor-specific-conclusions from projections of the likely investment needs, operating performance, and benefits of HSGT in a set of illustrative corridors in several regions. Although useful collectively, these case studies cannot substitute for the more detailed, State- and privately-sponsored analyses of specific corridors that would be prerequisite to HSGT implementation.
