Penn Studio Envisions High-Speed Northeast Corridor

cover image exec summary.jpg A University of Pennsylvania graduate planning studio released their final report this week, proposing investment in two new dedicated high-speed tracks connecting Boston to Washington. Traveling a new right-of-way in the north end of the Corridor, and involving station relocations and strategic improvements in the south end, the plan would cut travel times in half, achieving 90-minute service from New York to Washington, D.C. and 105 minute service from New York to Boston. 

You can download the Executive Summary or the full report in chapters on the Penn students' website.

The report was featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer on August 9.
