By November 4th, the Georgia DOT asks for Online Comments about the High Speed Rail from Atlanta to Charlotte, NC proposal


Dear Georgia, South and North Carolina Members,

High-speed rail for passengers between Atlanta and Charlotte, NC could take just a little over two hours but will cost billions to build according to a new Atlanta Journal Constitutional article from October 21, 2019.

The US Federal Railroad Administration and GA DOT recently released a study concerning the possibilities of this new line that could cost upwards of $15.4 billion to build.  No funding or construction timetable are not a part of the study apparently. The study does indicated that the line could serve up to 6.3 million passengers a year by 2050.

Please forward this NMA Alert to family and friends and ask them to comment.

Thank you.
