Rail Infrastructure Critical For America's Mobility
A report released recently by the Surface Transportation Policy Project (STPP), The State of the Nations Intercity Rail: Federal Investment Could Relieve Congestion and Improve Travel Choice, argues that dedicated federal investment in the nations rail infrastructure is critical to Americas 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."
