Comparative Performance Measurement: Safety

Front Cover
AASHTO, 2009 - Railroads - 75 pages
The overarching goal of this guidebook is to help states produce PRIIA-compliant state rail plans customized to the unique circumstances of each state. Interest in rail planning is reaching new heights as state departments of transportation across the country rush to qualify for new federal grants authorized through the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act (PRIIA). This new wave of state rail planning activity builds on the recent momentum and leadership of several states that have developed compelling freight and passenger rail planning programs and investments. This guidebook serves as flexible guidance to states launching state rail plans for the first time or for veteran programs looking to renew older plans with an eye to the future - and new funding.
