ABSTRACT: In July, the United States had the pleasure of welcoming UIC members – including some of you in this room – to the 8th World Congress on High-Speed Rail, the first UIC World Congress ever held in North America. For the U.S. Department of Transportation, July’s Congress was a great opportunity for us to learn from you – the world leaders on high-speed rail. We also saw it as a great opportunity to discuss with UIC our vision for high-speed and higher-performing intercity passenger rail in the United States – and to share with you our sense of forward momentum.
