HSGT MODE SERVICE ANALYSIS IN THE NORTHEAST CORRIDOR

The report describes the analysis of High Speed Ground Transportation service in the U. S. Northeast Corridor. In the analysis, three HSGT systems were established: a 150-mph High Speed Rail system (HSRA), a 200-mph High Speed Rail system (HSRC), and a Tracked Air Cushion Vehicle system (TACV). Each of these was analyzed in competition with auto, bus, conventional air (CTOL), short takeoff and landing (STOL), and vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) modes. (Author)
