WHITE PAPERS / RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS AND REPORTS

The time has come for the United States to focus on the investment in a high speed rail network! Through our thought leadership platform, the Alliance hopes to drive consistent communications of original, forward-thinking perspectives on the seminal industry challenges surrounding high speed rail development including financing, workforce and energy choices that have to be considered when planning for the design, construction, and operation of a national high speed rail network.

Get Involved

Please share your expertise by submitting a white paper that argues for a specific approach or solution to some aspect of the development of a US high speed rail system. We will help disseminate accepted papers through various channels, including posting them on the AHSRA website and our social media outlets for discussion and comment. We hope your submissions and participation will contribute significantly to the thought process. Email submissions to info@americanhsra.org.
