Free Report: Addressing High-Speed Rail Security In The US

The report notes that now is the right time to initiate a discussion, as new HSR systems are being designed and built. This report is intended to inform that discussion by addressing several questions, including: Does HSR merit more security or different security measures than other passenger rail? Is it appropriate to consider reducing security for non-HSR passenger rail? What threats drive security concerns? What can be learned from HSR security in Europe and Japan? Several other questions also are addressed.

The report includes 15 figures, including several route maps specific to the incidents, and 11 tables, including HSR attacks by country, HSR bomb attacks by outcome, HSR incidents involving fatalities, and more.
