Florida is Ideal Test Case for High-Speed Rail, Says TIME

TIME Magazine gives an overview of possibility of high-speed rail in the country, and sees Florida as the perfect place to start.

Bryan Walsh writes, "Demographically, Florida is an ideal state in which to launch the rail projects. Together, the metro areas of Tampa and Orlando are a major economic unit, home to more than 3.4 million people and close enough on the map to make high-speed rail competitive with air and auto travel. The region is also a tourist hub, which makes it likely that a Tampa-Orlando rail line will be well-used by Americans from around the country. That makes it a smart advertisement for other high-speed-rail projects back in their home regions."
