Trainsforming America Coming to Jacksonville

There is no doubt that Jacksonville residents and most of America lives in a car culture. Many U.S. citizens don't know what it would be like to live in a train culture. The population of the U.S. is on track to add over 100 million people to the country by the year 2050. Airports and highways are already over crowded. This film takes a look at what expanding passenger rail service in America would look like, as well as asking passengers what they think about increasing rail investment. Would they use it? Would it be a waste of money? Why is building high speed rail in California so urgent? Where does Jacksonville fit into all of this?

The First Coast Section of the American Planning Association (APA) Florida and Sun Ray Cinema are teaming up to advance this discussion locally.

Join us on this journey to find out what the future of transportation could look like!
