Urban Infrastructure Lab Report on High-Speed Rail

The Urban Infrastructure Lab researchers have released a report on a Cascadia region high-speed rail project. College of Built Environments faculty Jan Whittington and Qing Shen were authors on the report, along with 3 Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Urban Design and Planning students (Siman Ning, Haoyu Yue, and Chin-Wei Chen), and a Master of Urban Planning candidate (Richard McMichael).

This report examines the successes and lessons learned from existing high-speed rail projects in Europe and Asia, including 50 hours of interviews with industry experts and a review of relevant literature.
