Oct 20, 2020
Chicago, IL


Join DePaul University's Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development for a special Zoom webinar exploring more than a dozen communities that are benefiting from initiatives that involved reclaiming abandoned or out-of-service railroad corridors for new light-rail and commuter rail routes; each of these places previously lacked any kind of rail service.  Time: Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 6 - 7:10 p.m. Central (CT) (5 p.m ET).  Free.

“Travel” with us to San Rafael & Santa Monica, CA, Scituate, MA, Lynnwood, WA, Lakewood, CO and other places, and gain insight on restoration projects, including Florida’s Brightline.  The session will summarize highlights of our new illustrated working paper Back on Track: Initiatives to Restore Rail Service to U.S. Towns and Cities, 2004 - 2020, available here. Free (28 pages, including 3 maps). Click here to register for webinar. Email [email protected] with questions.  Or, to download study, visit our website
