Passenger rail

Compared to travel by car, travel by rail is an energy-efficient,
environmentally responsible option. Rail routes can also provide an opportunity for parks and greenways that offer recreation and relaxation. Reliability and resilience
are prime considerations when designing or upgrading
passenger rail systems.
