Some Stylized Facts about High Speed Rail around the World

  title={Some Stylized Facts about High Speed Rail around the World},
  author={Javier Campos and G. Rus and Ignacio Barr{\'o}n},
After collecting information on 166 high speed rail (HSR) projects across the world, this paper examines some of the most relevant empirical issues related to development of this transport mode in recent years. We start by discussing the economic definition of HSR, trying to identify different HSR development and exploitation models. Our next step consists in providing what could be considered a representative cost of building high speed infrastructure. A similar analysis is carried out… Expand
