ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the long-term strategic plan launched by President Barack Obama to promote the development of U.S. high speed rail systems. The plan would include an $8 billion initial funding provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, complemented by $1 billion annually for five years in budget appropriations. Some of the rail routes identified by Obama, vice president Joe Biden and Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, as capable of 110 miles per hour speeds include California Corridor and South Central Corridor.
