Time to Update The Midwest Regional Rail Initiative
We have had a very productive year at the High Speed Rail Association. New and improved stations are being built across the Midwest, CrossRail Chicago is gaining traction and intercity passenger rail was included in a long-term infrastructure bill for the first time ever.
The stage is set for a bigger and better 2017. We are asking our supporters to help us raise $90,000 before the end of the year so we can take advantage of upcoming opportunities.
A new opportunity is quickly approaching. The Federal Railroad Administration is starting to update the Midwest Regional Rail Initiative.
The new plan should include faster trip times, more frequent departures and greater coverage in order to build political momentum. The planning process will provide a fantastic opportunity to reengage local leaders throughout the Midwest to advocate for federal funding.
