  1. The Northeast Rail Network Improving Today, Planning Tomorrow Federal Railroad Administration The Northeast Regional Rail Workshop Philadelphia, Pennsylvania June 2, 2009 The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  2. Northeast Designated High Speed Rail Corridors Source: FRA, October 2005
  3. Northeast Intercity Passenger Rail Network
  4. The Northeast Regional Rail Network A Network of Corridors Serving 12 State Region and Beyond  Northeast Corridor (NEC) Spine: Boston – Washington, D.C  Nation’s Most Complex, Heavily Used Passenger Rail Corridor  Four Public Owners: Amtrak, NY/MTA, CTDOT, MA/MBTA  Intense, Mixed Use Traffic: Amtrak, 8 Commuter Railroads, 7 Freight Railroads  Connectors to the NEC Spine  Northeastern New England Corridors: Downeaster, Boston-Montreal, Knowledge Corridor,  Vermont Western Corridor Burlington to NYC  Empire Corridor: NYC-Albany-Niagara Falls, NYC-Albany-Montreal  Keystone Corridor - Harrisburg-Philadelphia  NEC Extension – Virginia  Public and Private Ownership: Amtrak, States, Class I, Regional and Short Lines  Mixed Use Traffic  Serves Over 50 Million People  Links Major Metropolitan Areas and Rural/Small Urban Communities  Connects Northeast - Canada & States South and West The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  5. Established System – Expanding Demand for Service Today:  2,500 Trains Daily: High Speed, Regional, Long-distance Intercity Service, Commuter, Freight  High Speed Service: NEC, Empire (South), Keystone Corridors  260 Million Riders Annually  14 Million Intercity Passengers  NEC Spine: 10.8 Million  NEC Connectors: 3.5 Million  Many NEC Spine Segments – Near or At Capacity  Reliability Challenged by Infrastructure Condition and Growth in Ridership The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  6. CONEG Governors’ Vision And Goals 2008 Strengthen Rail as an Integral Component of the Northeast’s Transportation System Objective: Strategically Expand Passenger Rail Service  Increased Ridership by 2030: Double Intercity & Commuter Ridership 2030 Projections/Current Plans  Intercity >26 Million  Total > 415 Million  Trains >3500  Quality Service: Safe, Reliable, Frequent, Higher Speed, Time-Price Competitive  Higher Speed Regional And Premium Service  Expanded Service in Existing and New Markets  Reduced Travel Times. More Frequent Service. Reliable Performance  Greater System Efficiency  Enhanced Intermodal Connectivity  Comprehensive Coordinated Planning of Infrastructure-Operational Improvements The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  7. Needs For The Corridor Network Reliability, Speed, Growth  Reliable Infrastructure  State of Good Repair, Backlog of Deferred Investments  Capacity for Growth  Intercity, Commuter, Freight  New Services – New Communities Served  Improved Connectivity  Enhanced Competiveness of Goods Movement Infrastructure & Equipment Improvements  Tracks, Bridges, Alignments, Interlockings, Stations, Catenary & Signals  New and More Equipment The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  8. Plans For The Corridor Network System-Wide  Expanded State Corridors  Improved Trip Times  More Frequent & Reliable Service  Freight Route Protection & Improved Port Access The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  9. Plans For The Corridor Network  Downeaster Extension and Expansion  Portland-Brunswick Extension  Portland-Boston Enhancements  Boston-New Hampshire Service  New Haven-Hartford-Springfield-Vermont Corridor  Knowledge Corridor Track Relocation  Vermont-Albany-NYC  Track & Bridge Improvements The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  10. Plans For The Corridor Network Empire Corridor  Empire South: NYC-Albany  Station/Track Improvements  Bridge Rehabilitation  Empire West: Albany-Niagara Falls  3rd Track Initiative – Passenger Service  Empire North: Albany-Montreal  Track Improvements  Border Crossing Enhancements The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  11. Plans For The Corridor Network  Keystone Improvements The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  12. Plans For The Corridor Network  NEC Spine  Bridges: CT, NJ, MD  Station Enhancements  Moynihan Station-NYC  BWI Airport Rail Station  Washington Union Station  Enhanced Service: Boston-Providence-New Haven  NEC Service Extension South  DC-Richmond The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  13. Linked Corridors = Regional Partnerships The Northeast Experience: States, Amtrak, Freight and Communities Working Together to Improve Intercity Passenger Rail Service.  CONEG Governors: Regional Cooperation on ARRA Rail Initiatives  Institutional Collaboration: Northeast Corridor Infrastructure and Operations Advisory Commission  CONEG Governors Vision for the Northeast Corridor Network  Northeast Corridor Infrastructure Master Plan  State Investments in Support of Intercity Infrastructure  Joint Benefit Agreements  Over $4 Billion  CONEG Governors High Speed Rail Task Force: Catalyst for High Speed Acela The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
  14. Why Rail Networks are a Priority for Governors Mobility Economic Growth Livable Communities Sustainable Environment  Urban Highways & Airports At Capacity  Rail – Only Cost-Effective Option To Simultaneously Expand Mobility, Reduce Congestion and Improve the Environment  NEC Electric – Lowest Per Passenger Emissions of Any Major Transportation Mode  Improved Intermodal Linkages – Rail Hub Improves Efficiency of Broader Transportation Network  NEC – Provides Essential Capacity For Goods Movements To/From East Coast Ports and Industries The Northeast: A Network of Corridors
