Investing in the Future of Passenger & Freight Rail: What's Next?

12:00 PM - 02:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Hotel George
15 E Street, NW
Washington, DC , 20001



This panel session will discuss upcoming trends in investment in the rail sector, including future needs for freight growth and the plan for the Northeast corridor.

Investments in freight and passenger rail facilities are critical to the competitiveness of the U.S. economy and the resolution of congestion issues. The past few years saw significant investment in passenger rail spurred by the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and freight railroads invested heavily in new lines to accommodate the increase in oil traffic. 

This panel session will discuss upcoming trends in investment in the rail sector, including future needs for freight growth and the plan for the Northeast corridor.
