Amtrak CEO Bill Flynn Testimony on High-Speed Rail Emerging Technologies – May 6, 2021

I am particularly honored to be representing Amtrak at this hearing. It takes place six days after President Biden traveled to Philadelphia to join us in celebrating Amtrak’s fiftieth anniversary. The American Jobs Plan he has proposed, which would provide $80 billion for Amtrak and highspeed and intercity passenger rail, is an important first step in developing an improved passenger rail system that would enhance mobility by serving more communities; provide more frequent and more equitable service; generate significant economic benefits; and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
