TRB’s National Cooperative Rail Research Program (NCRRP) Report 5: Developing Multi-State Institutions to Implement Intercity Passenger Rail Programs presents models of multi-state institutional arrangements for planning, developing, and operating intercity passenger rail networks and services. These models are designed to function in the context of rail passenger service currently provided by Amtrak and in response to the primary goal of the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (PRIIA) to provide more flexibility in developing and supporting intercity passenger rail operations in the United States.
Case studies of intercity passenger rail initiatives and non-transportation, multi-agency programs are summarized in this report and are detailed in a companion volume available as NCRRP Web-Only-Document 3. This document also includes background information on various regulations guiding formation of multi-jurisdictional institutions.
