Future Activities

Focus on activities beyond 2022 that will fulfill regional goals.

Goals for 2023 and Beyond

  1. Create a Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Passenger Rail Working Group (modeled on the successful Gulf Coast Working Group) to investigate new and restored passenger rail service throughout the region, identifying a completed network vision, with understanding of multi-modal, intermodal, connections through funding available in the BIL Sec. 22214.
  2. Implement long-term economically-viable, user-friendly, non-automobile transportation services through the region on a core passenger rail system: Seamless transportation.
  3. Create a sustaining moment for better passenger rail and multi-modal transportation (and infrastructure investment more broadly) for the economy, environment and equity of our citizens.
