THE NORTHEAST CORRIDOR HIGH SPEED RAIL SYSTEM: SELECTED IMPACTS ON ALTERNATIVE MODES
This report assesses several impacts of improved High-Speed Rail Service in the Northeast Corridor on alternative intercity passenger transportation modes. The impacts are the loss of taxes and toll revenues, loss of passenger revenues to the common carriers, reduction in operating costs and capital needs, and changes in air and highway levels of congestion. The report suggests that the impacts, both favorable and unfavorable, of HSRS on the alternative modes will be limited.
