  Railway Technology - Germany InterCity Express High Speed Rail Network operated by Deutsche Bahn
Although Deutsche Bundesbahn raised speeds and passenger standards with Class 103 hauled InterCity services from 1971, even with extensive track upgrading, 200km/h (124mph) would be the ceiling for reducing journey times.
A combination of ICE stock on NBS or the Ausbaustrecke (ABS) upgraded lines as well as on conventional track, ICE was an established format before German unification in 1990.
Thereafter plans were re-configured to take account of the resultant political, economic and social changes, with the merged Deutsche Bundesbahn and Deutsche Reichsbahn becoming Deutsche Bahn (DB) in 1994.

  InterCity (British Rail) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
InterCity (or, in the earliest days, the hyphenated version "Inter-City") was introduced by British Rail as a brand-name for its long-haul passenger railway services.
The sector responsible for long-distance express trains assumed the brand-name "InterCity", although many services that were previously designated such were assigned to other sectors (eg, London to King's Lynn services were transferred from InterCity to the commuter sector Network SouthEast).
InterCity branding was on upper grey body, with white numbers carried on the upper (grey) cabside.

 GAO-03-712T, Intercity Passenger Rail: Issues for Consideration in Developing an Intercity Passenger Rail Policy
As we reported last year, intercity passenger rail has the potential to provide broad public benefits, such as stemming increases in highway and air congestion, reducing automobile pollution, and reducing fuel consumption and energy dependency.[Footnote 16] We pointed out, however, that some of these benefits might be difficult to obtain.
The potential for intercity passenger rail to reduce air congestion is also greater where there is little, or no, room for additional runways and where there is limited competition between airlines resulting in relatively high air fares.
The specific markets where intercity passenger rail has the most potential to generate public benefits by reducing highway congestion are regions where the highway systems are consistently operating beyond capacity and are characterized by slow moving traffic.

Intercity bus in the same year, although it is way down from its all-time high, still served 4,274 communities.
Chairman, for section 18(I) to benefit the intercity bus operations in New York state, we truly believe it has just started to function in the manner in which it was originally intended and, therefore, it is imperative that it be renewed in the reauthorization.
Intercity bu s service is by far the most energy efficient mode of transportation; with an average ticket price of $33, intercity bus service is by far the most affordable form of intercity public transportation; and, as cited earlier, in thousands of communities, it is the only form of intercity public transportation.

In some instances, certain intercity bus providers may be unwilling or unable to accept the terms and conditions the state applies to subrecipients and may prefer to maintain a contractual relationship, in order to isolate the remainder of their operations from Federal requirements related to a grant.
The Federal share for intercity projects is the same as for the Section 5311 program as a whole: 50 percent of the net cost for operations and 80 percent of the net cost for capital projects and project administration.
In the absence of a certification from the Governor that intercity needs are adequately met, fifteen percent of the state's annual apportionment must be obligated for intercity bus transportation within the period of availability (three years).

Intercity service is not limited by the size of the vehicle used or by the identity of the carrier.
Currently, intercity bus companies may claim a refund of all excise taxes on gasoline and tires, and may claim a refund of all but 3.1 cents per gallon of the federal taxes on diesel or other fuels.
States are to assess their intercity bus transportation needs and adopt a program which will support a network of intrastate services and provide connections with the existing national network of intercity bus transportation services.

 CONEG - Intercity Passenger Rail, October 1, 2001
For example, using intercity passenger rail for shorter trips in the Northeast helps manage congestion at some of the nation's busiest airports by allowing scarce airport slots to be used for more efficient, longer distance flights.
Intercity passenger rail corridors, with their need for coordinated planning and investment strategies, require predictable, long term federal financing tools which recognize the specific skills, experiences, and institutions of the funding partners.
The model of incremental investment in intercity passenger rail by state, federal and private partnerships is being repeated across the nation.

 Intercity Rail Program   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Over 17,000 intercity travelers were surveyed to determine existing trip patterns and purposes, and to quantify the values of time, speed, convenience and other factors that could attract travelers to rail service.
By the year 2020 total intercity travel in the region is expected to increase by 60%; however faster growth in population and the economy in and around Atlanta means that travel between Atlanta and points within 150 miles will nearly double in that time.
One of the most significant findings was that intercity travellers would be willing to use intercity rail service in significant numbers only if it were as fast or faster than the automobile, implying a trip of average speed of 70-75 mph or higher.

The Intercity Bridge, spanning the Mississippi River to join the cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota, is historically significant as one of the largest reinforced concrete bridges ever built in Minnesota and is a significant engineering accomplishment.
The bridge is an excellent example of the monumental urban, continuous-rib-arch, reinforced-concrete bridges constructed to span the high and scenic Mississippi River bluffs during the early automobile age in the Twin Cities.
The role of the Intercity Bridge in the development of the Highland Park neighborhood at its eastern terminus is an unusual one.

Ofcom’s investigation considered whether Intercity’s standard terms under which it provides number portability, by requiring subscribers to pay an up-front charge prior to the issuing of a Porting Authorisation Code (“PAC”), are in compliance with Intercity’s obligations under General Condition 18.
Subscribers of Intercity, who have served their minimum contractual term, will no longer be faced with up-front charges before they are issued with a PAC.
The customer of Intercity was told that before Intercity would enable the transfer (by issuing the porting authorisation code ("PAC")) the customer must first pay up-front charges, including estimated call charges for calls likely to be made during the porting process.

In this case, the intercity portion could be leased to an intercity carrier or carriers without any rental payment.
When a part of an intermodal terminal developed with FTA assistance is used for intercity bus service, intercity operations are treated as an incidental use, and the intercity operator must pay rent to the grantee.
However, fair- market rents should be consistent with amounts normally paid by intercity carriers for terminal space, and thus should be reasonable, given alternative locations for intercity terminals.

 CRS Report: 96-22 - Amtrak and Energy Conservation in Intercity Passenger Transportation - NLE
The fuel intensity of alternative modes of intercity passenger travel is contained in table 1.(3) As can be seen from the numbers there, intercity buses use less than 40% of the energy of Amtrak (measured in Btu(4)) per passenger-mile.
This report does not address air pollution or potential environmental hazards resulting from energy conservation in intercity passenger transportation because the links among fuel consumption, air pollution, and potential environmental hazards are different for various fuels.
Similarly, an increase in congestion could occur if Amtrak passengers were to travel by intercity bus, but the far greater energy efficiency of intercity buses compared to Amtrak suggests that the increased fuel consumption resulting from increased congestion could be more than offset by the higher fuel efficiency of buses.
