A report released recently by the Surface Transportation Policy Project (STPP), The State of the Nation’s Intercity Rail: Federal Investment Could Relieve Congestion and Improve Travel Choice, argues that dedicated federal investment in the nation’s rail infrastructure is critical to America’s mobility and economic growth. “Making a significant commitment to our rail network is the only way we will keep our highway network from being completely overwhelmed. Increasing freight volumes and reduced passenger travel choices make it imperative,” said Anne Canby, STPP President. “We must utilize every mode of transportation in an integrated, balanced system to improve freight and passenger mobility. The long term health of our economy deserves no less."
