Envisioning a Network of Passenger Rail throughout the Southeast

The Southeast Regional Rail Planning Study


A Multi-State Planning Study

The Federal Railroad Administration has embarked on a project to explore the potential for a high-performance, multi-state intercity passenger rail network in the Southeast region. The study builds on current rail planning efforts within the six states of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia and the District of Columbia, and explores the potential for a fully integrated rail network linking rail passengers and freight with intermodal transit and ports across the region.
