Rail Modernization Study: Report to Congress
This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. The nation¿s seven largest rail transit agencies deliver over three billion passenger trips each year, relying on over 6,000 miles of track, 1,700 passenger stations and 15,000 rail vehicles to do so. These services, and the infrastructure and rolling stock that support them, are critical to the transportation needs and quality of life of the communities they serve. But, this infrastructure is aging and the level of reinvestment is insufficient to address a growing backlog of deferred investment needs. This study assesses the level of capital investment required to maintain a state of good repair for the nation¿s seven largest rail transit operators. The study also considers past levels of Fed. funding support as well as potential changes to the current Fed. program.
