Northeast Corridor Vision and Plans

In response to strong and continued demand for rail travel in the Northeast Corridor, Amtrak has developed a vision for Next Generation high-speed rail service on the NEC. Developed in consultation with its international peers, Amtrak’s NextGen Vision proposes dramatic trip time reductions between major cities, more frequent trains, and new, dedicated infrastructure for high-speed trains, while upgrading and enhancing existing infrastructure for the 2,000 commuter trains, 140 Amtrak trains, and 60 freight trains that use the NEC each day.

Host Railroad Report Card

Most of Amtrak’s network consists of tracks owned, maintained, and dispatched by freight railroads, known as “host” railroads where Amtrak uses their tracks. In fact, the number one cause of delay to Amtrak customers is “freight train interference,” caused by freight railroads failing to comply with Federal law requiring that Amtrak trains be given preference over freight. The Host Railroad Report Card grades the largest freight railroad hosts based on the delays Amtrak customers experience while traveling on host tracks.

Monthly Performance Reports

Going forward, Amtrak will report Adjusted Operating Earnings as the key financial measure to evaluate results, Net Income/(Loss) will continue to be reported for reference. Adjusted Operating earnings represents Amtrak’s cash funding needs and is a reasonable proxy for Federal Operating Support needed in line with the appropriation.

Amtrak Connects US Vision for Improving Transportation Across America

In 2020, discussions with state partners about expanding service led to the creation of the Amtrak Connects US Corridor Vision — a comprehensive strategy aimed at developing and expanding intercity passenger rail to boost mobility, spur economic growth, and cut emissions nationwide. A year later, Congress passed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which allocated a historic $66 billion for improvements to passenger and freight rail. Today, states and other eligible entities are entering projects into the Federal Railroad Administration’s IIJA-funded Corridor Identification & Development Program. We are eager to work with states, local communities, the administration, and many other stakeholders to build upon Amtrak’s national network and integrate new and enhanced corridors across our system.
