High speed rail won't stop in every town. Cost efficiency of HSR goes up when the trains stay at high speeds, which means that it will travel directly from Chattanooga to Atlanta. Local communities will benefit from the increased frequency of business travel between these corridors and a mode of transportation that is cheaper than flying. Maglev technology is however significantly more expensive than steel-wheel HSR technology, so a shift in planning should be made there.
