Lisa Schweitzer takes on Ryan Avent on HSR: Culture Wars Nonsense around the HSR and a Technocratic Answer

Among other good points ...

Secondly, Avent's whipping out the 100 million population growth number made me laugh. That means we need inter-regional HSR instead of building urban subways or heavy rail? That's what that number means? It doesn't make sense. Yes, there will be greater demand for inter-regional travel, but there will be much greater demand for within region travel-there always is. That means if we are gong to spend billions on transit, the resources should be going to urban transit systems first.
