The AA. develop a new method to calculate regional accessibility with GIS, using the Shanghai–Nanjing high-speed rail (SNHR) as an example. They calculate the indexes of normal accessibility, average accessibility and weighted average accessibility before and after SNHR was put into service. They also calculate the changes of the indexes. The results show that the values of all the indexes decrease and that regional accessibility is improved by SNHR. The reduction degrees are not the same in all different places. In addition, the AA. discuss the potential impact of accessibility changes. Accessibility changes will promote sustainable development and regional cooperation. At the same time, as the imbalance of accessibility changes, the gap of competitiveness levels between regions along the line and edge regions will be expanded
