Amtrak's Corridor Vision Plan

As Amtrak celebrates 50 years of service to America, we are focused on the future and are pleased to present this comprehensive plan to develop and expand our nation’s transportation infrastructure, enhance mobility, drive economic growth and meaningfully contribute to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Vision

A bold, 15-year strategy for expansion will connect dozens of city pairs up to 160 communities to Amtrak service, increasing ridership, environmental sustainability, and economic investment. And, all of this will be done in an energy-efficient manner that reduces our nation’s carbon footprint through cleaner and more convenient passenger rail.

Benefits

Our vision for the future is a modern passenger rail network that creates more than half a million jobs and delivers over $150 billion in economic benefit to impacted local communities by 2035. At the same time, traveling on Amtrak’s non-electrified trains is 47% more energy-efficient than driving and one-third more efficient than flying.

Keeping Our Future On Track

As the nation’s largest intercity passenger rail service, Amtrak has connected people and communities across America for half a century. Amtrak doesn’t just move riders from point A to point B; it serves as a catalyst for moving our economy forward, creating jobs, protecting our environment, and connecting people, cities, and our nation to a brighter future. Keeping our future on track will require a national investment – and a renewed commitment – to innovation, infrastructure, and ensuring access to dependable, modern rail. An investment in our rail infrastructure is an investment in America.
