Virginians for High Speed Rail (VHSR) is a non-profit founded in 1994 to educate and advocate for fast, frequent, and reliable rail service connecting the Commonwealth to the entire East Coast. I encourage you to look around, and hopefully help us spread the word about Virginians for High Speed Rail.
