What is high-speed rail?

High-speed rail is a type of passenger rail transport that operates significantly faster than the normal speed of rail traffic, typically at speeds above 110 mph, and usually connects communities across a larger geographic region than commuter rail. The proposal being advocated by the Southeast Minnesota Rail Alliance is for this type of inter-regional high-speed passenger rail.
