Abstract There is significant experience and research on the competition of air and high-speed rail (HSR) modes. The existing research covers areas including system structure (vehicle technology, cost, ridership, etc.) and environmental effects. The objective of the Environmental Assessment of Air and High-Speed Rail Corridors synthesis is to bring together research and other findings related to air and HSR environmental assessments and to understand where additional research can improve our ability to assess the environmental outcomes of these two systems. A literature review is the primary tool for collecting data for this synthesis of current practice.
