Abstract

High-speed rail has been around since 1964. It first tribute in 1964, when Japan introduced the first modern high-speed train which use electricity as its power source. Since 1980, countries around Asia and Europe utilize the high-speed rail to connect between major cities up to 1,000 kilometers apart.As a time travel journey is reduced by using high-speed train is one of the main reasons why the high speed train is so popular.However, its environmental impact is questioned as it uses electricity rather than fossil fuels as its power source.Even today high-speed rail as a greener transport had been questioned about its effectiveness.Some claims that high-speed transport still gives environmental impact as a major source of electricity comes from fossil fuels.Others claim that high-speed rail can cut the use of oil among transport by drawing people to use trains rather their car. This study goes to seek whether high-speed train can truly reduce the oil consumption among transportation vehicles and to determine the effectiveness of high-speed train drawing people out of their car.
