Walking and bicycling are the basic forms of travel. But modern methodologies for predicting future travel patterns, traffic congestion, parking demand, and funding priorities are based on assumptions that are incompatible with walking and bicycling.

Transportation professionals face a critical dilemma: either go with the flow by prioritizing car traffic or protect human life even if it means inconveniencing car traffic.

High Speed Rail Planning, Policy and Engineering looks at the question of where a high-speed passenger rail line would be most productive and how it could be profitable. It investigates the political issues confronting high-speed rail funding and location. This first volume looks at recent achievements in high-speed rail, including record high speeds for trains operating with steel wheels on steel rail. It also covers the history of high-speed rail operations, particularly in the United States.
