The urban land teleconnections’ (ULT) research is emerging largely due to more local urbanization being attributable to distal land demand. The knowledge on ULT and how ULT is driven by transportation is significant because urban growth or shrinkage, and green coverage probably sets the city's foundation of natural, healthy living settings. However, transportation's role in driving ULT is barely studied. This study aims to contribute to the theoretical role of intercity transportation in the ULT arena, and to explore empirically the spatial pattern of high-speed rail (HSR) trips, as well as to probe HSR's impact on ULT.
