People all around the world depend on different modes of transportation to take them to work places, schools and other destinations.

America is a car-loving nation and they use cars to travel across the country. Americans are starting to realize the impact of gasoline fluctuations and congested highways. High-speed railway network helps the public to avoid these problems and reach destination on the right time. There are many advantages of high-speed railways networks and some of them include:
Although high-speed railways burn fossil fuels, they are considered to be environmental friendly when compared to other private vehicles. Trains are able to carry more people at a time and people travel long distances with great comfort. Unlike many other private vehicles, trains are free from the burden of traffic blocks.
Some people still consider car over railways to travel to far away destinations. People drive for long duration, face traffic conditions and pay to refill petrol/diesel. High-speed railways on the other hand take you to your destination as soon as possible.
Airlines are still considered to be the most comfortable mode of transportation. They offer comfortable seats and hot meals. Apart from all these factors, airlines still irritate public with boarding procedures. They also have restrictions on luggage which a person can carry. On the other hand, railways have come a long way in case of comfort. Now they also offer comfortable seats and hot meals. In addition, railways commonly have fewer restrictions on luggage.
