fellow americas does it bother u how much of a joke our transport systems are? china has 1000x more high speed rail than us with only 4x the population and about the same size. wouldnt it be way easier if we didnt all have to own cars?

yes but if you want to move a lot of people from one location to another in a country with no rivers, you should use trains.

They would only be feasible in certain areas. Like California, Texas, and the Northeast.

California's new rail system was/is an utter failure
2020-07-31 04:38
That's due to several issues, from regulations to funding. If the federal government had a plan to create high speed rail all over the country, it would get done. But oil companies, car manufactures, and airlines would lobby against any such plan and it would never happen.
2020-07-31 05:09
Typical. Companies always lobying for their own good instead of the greater good, sucks sometimes

I mean the new cross-state high speed rail that is still in construction. I think it's called CHSR

2020-07-31 05:25
I was going to reply almost the same thing. The freight train system of USA is the envy of the world. These trains are as efficient as they can be. Specially when they pack up some fucking 300 intermodal cars in a train with like 5 locomotives. They are fast, operate cheaply, and the price of shipping over long distances drops crazily. Other countries will never understand that. I agree, REAL trains. Passenger trains are obviously important, but when it comes to shipping and good prices for it, these fucking massive trains do it as good as possible. They are a massive help and upgrade to a good economy. This is what I linked: youtube.com/watch?v=FlgwOVntknA

Better public transit would be great!

Having a car in the USA is a fact of life. It wouldn’t change if we had more high speed rail. The USA is just too large a country to effectively and cost efficiently traverse via train. Also, Chinese high speed rail ain’t very fast. I’ve been on what they claim is high speed rail and it’s more like a train from the late 1800s.
2020-07-31 06:42
US and china are about the same size INCLUDING alaska, and China has the best high speed rail in the world, so this is nonsensical
2020-07-31 09:40
Believing Chinese propaganda numbers omegalul
2020-07-31 13:49
What is propaganda? The size of their country? The length of rail? The speed? None of this can be easily faked without it being relatively obvious.
2020-07-31 13:55
Yeah and it is relatively obvious. Just ride the rail they claim is high speed and you realize its as fast if not slower than the NY metro
2020-07-31 14:05
You realize trains have times to arrive at certain places, right? So we can see the distance between two places and the time it takes to get there and therefore know how fast the train is going. The fastest train in the United States is the Acela express (this is the only high speed rail the US has) travelling between NY and DC. NY and DC are 364 kilometres apart. It takes 2 hours and 45 minutes to get there at 132.3 km/h. The Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway, by comparison, has to travel a distance of 1,302 km, and averages 291.9 km/h across this journey, making a trip of 4 hours and 18 minutes. To fake these numbers, the Chinese government would have to fake their entire transportation schedule to make it look like the trains are arriving faster than they are (which means the train schedule would be unusable) and get essentially their entire population and anyone who visits there to lie about the time it took for the train to get there. If the numbers were faked, we would know. To hide such a thing would require the most coordinated conspiracy in the history of mankind.
2020-07-31 14:22
It’s almost like the Chinese government is the biggest propaganda machine on the planet. I think you severely underestimate the work China goes through to lie about their technological standing. Also, the us does know that China lies through their teeth about nearly everything, rail being one of those things. You act like it’s impossible for China to lie, which is honestly quite hilarious. I am telling you first hand, large parts of the rail China claims is high speed is not.
2020-07-31 14:31
You are genuinely just not thinking straight. How could any conspiracy consistently keep up with fake train schedules? The entire train system wouldn't work. No one riding the train would report that it took significantly longer than reported? It's not just difficult to coordinate this conspiracy, it's literally impossible, and you think China would try to pull that feat just to make their trains look a little better? That guy is right, you are missing some meds or something lol
2020-07-31 15:16
trains work in china due to the high population density trains are used in the us in packed cities, like new york its much more simplistic to own a car in a suburb

2020-07-31 09:42
They have 1000x times the high speed rail with 4x the population and being a fair bit larger than the contiguous US
2020-07-31 09:42
because its a better solution for them if everyone in china had a car imagine the congestion they would have
2020-07-31 22:00
hope ur having fun on trains right now gl with covid. Ill stick to my car.
2020-07-31 07:12
Is your car covid free?
2020-07-31 12:40
yes...im the only one in it normally and im covid free.

Anything goverment in the US is a failure
2020-07-31 07:21
much prefer a personal car to a train full of people also there are trains in China that are so packed people have to wear diapers because they HAVE to shit themselves because the toilets are always in use I mean I don't know why anyone would think that is a good thing but I dunno you do you weirdo

It's easier in China because land is only leased from the government, and good luck with the courts when you're in the way From what I heard better service along the New England corridor has been discussed many times but never happens
2020-07-31 09:14
Yeah but they don't have these real trains: youtube.com/watch?v=FlgwOVntknA For a fact, USAs freight train system is the envy of the world.
2020-07-31 09:22
most of the time cars are much more convenient
