History of Northeast Corridor Planning

air rail market share.png The Business Alliance for Northeast Mobility, a coalition of business and civic groups from Maine to Virginia, has been advocating for funding to increase the capacity, speed, and reliability of intercity and commuter rail service on the Northeast Corridor since 2006.

Amtrak and the Northeastern states are about to embark on a new round of ambitious planning for upgraded rail service in the corridor.  This PowerPoint presentation prepared by Regional Plan Association provides context for this process with a brief history of planning efforts on the corridor over the past four decades and a snapshot of where the corridor is today.
