A vision for High Speed Intercity Passenger Rail Service in the United States includes both high speed passenger service operating at speeds of 200 mph in sealed, passenger only, separated rights of way in some corridors, as well as incremental speed improvements for passenger service operating on existing freight rail lines to achieve speeds between 79 and 90 mph without impacting freight service. Each component involves unique challenges. TranSystems can help. With over 40 years of experience serving both the freight rail and passenger rail industries, TranSystems has the depth of expertise in rail planning, operations analysis and simulation, economics, engineering design, and construction management to help bring vision to reality.
