Which is a better investment for America, light rail in urban areas or high speed inter-city rail?
There's been a lot of talk about rail investment recently, and one of the questions has been whether to invest it in local light rail or high-speed inter-city rail.
- Light rail is for commuting in urban and suburan areas. Think about the local trains maintained by your city or state, like the Long Island Railroad, MTA, SEPTA, etc.
- High speed rail is for travel between urban centers.
Tell me, Reckonauts! Which would be more beneficial to most Americans and provide the best return on investment?
