NTC@Maryland Hosts International Workshop on High Speed Rail

Arizona State University and The University of Maryland, as part of our National Transportation Center, hosted a high-speed rail workshop “International Workshop on High-Speed Rail Planning and Operations, Toward Economic Development and Sustainability” on October 30, 2015 in Washington DC. This one-day, free technology transfer event featured leading high-speed rail planners, practitioners, and researchers from the United States, Denmark, and China. Speakers discussed the economic and environmental challenges and opportunities for future high-speed rail systems using case examples. The workshop audience included consultants, researchers, government agency personnel, and students which generated excellent multi-perspective discussions.
