Please join NYU Marron's Transportation and Land Use program at 1PM on May 21st as our own Alon Levy and Bloomberg Opinion columnist Noah Smith discuss their contrasting analyses of High Speed Rail in America. Both Levy and Smith have written about the potential benefits and drawbacks of a High Speed Rail program in the United States.
Smith's article, which spawned this webinar, is linked below:
And, here is Levy's response:
In addition to the discussion, the Transportation and Land Use program will debut its High Speed Rail costs database. The database details key characteristics and costs of high speed rail programs across the globe, and it serves as a logical extension of our Transit Costs Project database.
If you’re curious about high speed rail or how much it might cost to link San Francisco and LA, Dallas and Houston, or New York and D.C., be sure to join us!
