Re: [CanPassRail] Perceived Risk on Various Modes


How realistic is that $13 Billion number/
Sounds like an awful lot considering the amount of passenger service operating in the US (and Canada).

For Canada, would it not make sense to just install a system like that in the Quebec City to Windsor corridor?
I assume the cost is related to the distance covered.


PS - Of all the modes of travel, By foot, bicycle, motor vehicle, bus, train, airplane, boat, I feel the safest going by train.
