A message from Alliance member David Phillips: Please Step Forward! You’ve recently received emails from the Alliance with testimonials to the value and importance of high-speed rail. The writers have made a compelling case for its implementation in North America, and they’ve asked you to support the work of the Alliance. Today, I want to explain some of the concrete effects of your support.

Thank you to all that donated last week. And thank you to Stan and Beth for challenging the Alliance to gain at least 50 donations last week.  We exceeded their goal.  It was a great step towards our year-end challenge.

I support the High Speed Rail Alliance because I truly believe in the benefits and advantages of high-speed rail to our society.

As an engineering professional, I have always been curious about how nature works and how nature can be applied to benefit human society.

California's high-speed rail project is going ahead despite false media reports last winter that Gov. Gavin Newsom had pulled the plug. But it still faces serious challenges, and some key decision points are looming.

First, let's be clear about the importance of this project. A lot hinges on it.

The initial segment—the Central Valley line—is the best way to demonstrate the power of high-speed trains on a national stage. It can be transformative far beyond California. But how it’s built matters.
