U.S. HIGH SPEED RAIL COALITION
21ST CENTURY TRANSPORTATION FOR AMERICA
To deliver these benefits across America, we need your help. Businesses and labor unions are contributing $25,000 each to join our Executive Committee and help propel our campaign to victory. Our Coalition is meeting with elected officials at the highest levels of government to press our case for robust high-speed rail funding. Our Executive Committee members are AECOM, Arup, Brightline, Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen, Grimshaw, HJI Group, HNTB, Quandel Consulting, Renfe, National Conference of Firemen & Oilers 32BJ SEIU, Siemens, Stacy and Witbeck, Teamsters Rail Conference, U.S. High Speed Rail Association, Waterford Solutions Limited, and WSP. Your organization can be part of this historic campaign. History has shown that as soon as a country inaugurates a high-speed rail line, the public demands more. That happened after Japan opened its Tokyo-to-Osaka line in 1964. After France opened its Paris-to-Lyon line in 1981, not only France but all of Europe wanted one. Once we build a high-speed rail system here, all of America will want it. That will mean contracts for hundreds of companies. To compete in the 21st Century, America needs high-speed rail. The ongoing infrastructure negotiations in Washington provide a historic opportunity for our nation to catch up with the rest of the industrialized world and build the transportation infrastructure of the future.
