High-Speed Ground Transportation and Transportation Decision-Making: A New Perspectiveby Kenneth M. Mead, U.S. General Accounting Office, Washington, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: High Speed Ground Transportation Systems I: Planning and Engineering
Abstract: My remarks this morning address the issues surrounding high-speed ground transportation (HSGT) at the federal level. Specifically, I examine both the traditional and the emerging ways in which transportation system decisions are made, the enhanced possibilities fostered by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 for federal involvement in and funding of HSGT, and the options available for implementing HSGT in this country. I also describe the role and the potential contributions of the United States General Accounting Office (GAO) in the HSGT area.
