Because it is by-in-large a new concept in the U.S., however, the extent to which HSR will cause changes in regional economic growth and community development is not widely understood by practitioners, elected leaders and community members. As the federal High-Speed and Intercity Rail program advances, the field of practice and research in this area grows.
