What we need, then, is a smart transportation system equal to the needs of the 21st century ... Imagine boarding a train in the center of a city, no racing to an airport and across a terminal. No delays, no sitting on tarmac, no lost luggage. No taking off your shoes.
Imagine whisking through towns at speeds over 100 miles per hour, walking only a few steps to public transportation, and ending up just blocks from your destination.
Imagine what a great project that would be to rebuild America. -President Barack Obama
