  It has been clear through the past few years that something needs to happen with transportation throughout the United States. Take California for example. Despite the most devastating recession in 60 years, California is the world's eighth largest economy, as of , and has an ever increasing population. City-to-city transportation is becoming more common and crucial for . Find many great new & used options and get the best deals for High Speed Ground Transportation Systems I - Planning and Engineering: Proceedi at the best online prices at . The development of high-speed rail (HSR) services throughout the last decades has gradually blurred the concept of competition and cooperation with air transportation. There is a wide range of studies on this subject, with a particular focus on single lines or smaller regions. This article synthesizes and discusses recently published studies in this area, while aiming to identify commonalities.   But Roger Millar, Washington State’s secretary of transportation, sees a better way: a trans-national, ultra-high-speed rail line that can hit mph and put the three booming cities within.

Ron Pate, Director Scott Richman. WSDOT Rail, Freight and Ports Division CH2M HILL, INC. Decem Ultra-High-Speed Ground Transportation Feasibility Study. Tube-based vacuum transportation was conceptualized over years ago, as a means to achieve ultra-high-speed ground transportation and efficient inter-city travel.

An early version was prototyped in by Boris Weinberg. The system is designed with the following objectives: • High-speed passenger transportation – greatly exceeding the speed capability of high-speed rail and conven- tional trains, and exceeding the speed of fossil-fuel-dependent airline jet flights.

• High-frequency departures: passengers need not plan a trip long in advance. (1) Implement high-speed ground transportation service offering top speeds over m.p.h. between Everett and Portland, Oregon by This would be accomplished by meeting the intermediate objectives of a maximum travel time between downtown Portland and downtown Seattle of two hours and thirty minutes by the year and maximum travel time of two hours by the year.

Ultra High-Speed Ground Transportation Study. Prepared for. Washington State Department of Transportation. December Prepared by. CH2M HILL, Inc. SW Fourth Avenue, 3rd Floor Portland, OR High speed passenger rail systems ( mph and above) now operate in Japan, France, and Great Britain.

Several states and local governments, as well as private sector groups, have undertaken feasibility studies to assess the outlook for introducing high speed passenger rail. The Cascadia Innovation Corridor ­has a desire better connect the Cascadia region, which extends from Portland, through Seattle, to Vancouver, BC.

One way in which this section of the Pacific Northwest hopes to be brought together is through ultra-high-speed ground transportation that would bring riders from Seattle to Vancouver (or to Portland) in only one hour.

Railway Transportation Systems: Design, Construction and Operation presents a comprehensive overview of railway passenger and freight transport systems, from design through to construction and operation.

It covers the range of railway passenger systems, from conventional and high speed inter-urban systems through to.Magnetically levitated trains are discussed in the context of mass ground transportation, emphasizing the need for reliability and high speed.

The principles of magnetic levitation and linear motor propulsion and computations for lift drag forces are given. Safety, load requirements, and costs are analyzed, and draw-backs are presented.So now there was, according to the UMTA, a (perceived) critical need for a high-speed ground transportation (HSGT) system.

Also planned for was a connection from LAX to San Diego. Rohr Industries knew this and was hoping to be the winner of the three candidates with the UMTA so its Aerotrain would be that now much needed vehicle.
