Advocating for Better Travel Options
The High Speed Rail Alliance is a people-powered non-profit working for stronger communities and a healthier environment through the development of fast, frequent and affordable trains.
We help engaged individuals and civic leaders understand what American trains could be, why we should build them, and how to make it happen.
High Speed Rail Is Urgent
High-speed rail strikes at the core of today’s biggest challenges with our environment, the economy and fragmented communities.
We can’t wait any longer to dramatically change our priorities and rapidly expand passenger train networks.
For growth. For freedom. For cleaner, better, more connected communities.

We’re Made Up Of People From Our Communities
Leadership. Young Professionals. Volunteers. Together, we form the High Speed Rail Alliance.
Why? Because we care about the future. We’re driven to make transportation cleaner, more affordable, and faster.
Our Foundation, Corporate and Municipal Partners
High speed rail is good for communities. It’s good for business. It’s good for everyone. That’s why we’re so honored to having foundation, corporate, and municipal partners who want to be a part of the solution.
High speed rail doesn’t come about because one person wants it. It’s a joint effort. It’s a partnership between different groups. It comes from connecting.
Promoting Workable, Shovel-Read Plans for High Speed Rail
High speed rail isn’t based on future technology.
We don’t have to invent new ways of doing things. We just have to leverage existing resources to make high speed rail a reality. That is our three-track program.
Track 1: Integrated Plans
We support big-picture regional and national plans that integrate high-speed trains, conventional trains and expanded bus networks.
Integrated networks make each segment or route more useful to travelers – thus building a stronger business case and a broader political base for the system as a whole. And, they make it easier for multiple agencies and/or companies to coordinate their projects.
Track 2: Immediate Improvements
There many opportunities to improve existing railroads to benefit both passengers and shippers.
Track 3: High-Speed Lines
We push for the completion of transformative high-speed lines.
