Connecting America's Cities

A Virtual Convening on the Elements of High-Speed and Intercity Passenger Rail Advocacy
April 7-8, 2021

The coming years bring great opportunity to unleash the economic power of our megaregions, to enable equitable and affordable access and opportunity, and to create short-term and permanent American jobs. Those national benefits can be achieved by building a robust high-speed and intercity passenger rail network that is environmentally friendly, resilient, and sustainable.

The Connecting America's Cities conference will bring together a wide range of stakeholders and advocates to cover the full range of questions that need to be addressed in making that vision a reality.

It’s time to stop envying what other countries have. It’s time stop asking why can’t we do that. It’s time to implement a high-speed rail network in America. Discussion over the next two days will concentrate on what has been called the second great railroad revolution – a generational opportunity before us to propel the nation’s infrastructure into the future and help solve the climate emergency and connect people.
