Southeast Rail Forum: Preparing for Change – Planning for Success

01:00 PM - 11:00 AM Eastern Standard Time

Sheraton Charlotte Hotel
555 S McDowell St.
Charlotte, NC , 28204

The N.C. Department of Transportation Rail Division and the WTS NC Triangle Chapter are pleased to host the 2016 Southeast Rail Forum in Charlotte to discuss ongoing freight and passenger rail initiatives in the region. The Southeast Rail Forum is a regional rail forum among five southeastern states – Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida – and the District of Columbia.

The forum will feature discussions on a broad spectrum of issues related to high-performance passenger, intermodal and freight rail.

Sessions will highlight:

  • The need for rail to support a growing region and economy
  • The positive economic impacts of passenger and freight rail operations and investments
  • Ongoing initiatives throughout the Southeast and associated challenges
  • Governance issues on how to fund projects across state lines

State and local officials, Federal Railroad Administration staff, railroads, Chambers of Commerce, MPOs, transit agencies and other industry experts will participate in panel discussions about projects and strategies that can assist in developing a vision and method to deliver better freight and passenger services to the growing population and economy in the Southeast.

The 2016 Southeast Rail Forum will host many experts in rail as well as local and state decision makers.

Sponsorship opportunites are available. Please click on the PDF document at the bottom of this page for details.
