Dear Members o Congress:It is with great enthusiasm that I submit this strategic plan or high-speed rail. In the last century, anational vision led to the creation o the world’s most advanced highway and aviation networks – helpingspur unprecedented economic growth and urban development. Now, President Obama is ready to makea renewed commitment to the Nation’s travelers – not just to upgrade and maintain our aging highway and aviation systems, but to build a world-class network o high-speed passenger rail corridors. We ace a complex set o challenges in the 21
century – building a robust, green economy, gaining energy independence, reversing global climate change, and ostering more livable, connected communities. Tesenew challenges require creative new transportation solutions. A combination o express and regionalhigh-speed corridors, evolving rom upgraded, reliable intercity passenger rail service, has proven eectivein addressing many o these challenges around the world and in selected U.S. corridors. Te President iscommitted to bringing this successul approach to key travel corridors across America. We begin that process here, and will urther develop and rene it in the coming months through ourbudget and policy proposals. Troughout the process o advancing this new transportation vision, thePresident has asked me to reach out to you, our State partners, other key stakeholders and the public. We will, thereore, be seeking eedback and suggestions that help lead us to a successul implementation o this high-speed rail initiative.I look orward to working with Congress as we embark on this exciting new journey to transorm America’s transportation system.
