Better Service for Passengers

MORE RELIABLE, FREQUENT TRAINS:

„

„

Double the number of Regional rail trains during peak hours in major metropolitan

areas, making it easier to commute by rail (for instance, at the Hudson River crossing,

today’s 21 trains per hour would double to 42)

„

„

Up to five times the number of Intercity trains, giving travelers more choices and

the opportunity for spontaneous trips

BETTER CONNECTIONS TO MORE PLACES:

„

„

Frequent, direct service to Hartford, CT, and Springfield, MA and points in between,

integrating the Hartford/Springfield Line with the NEC

„

„

Additional one-seat rides among communities on the NEC, and between NEC markets

and connecting corridors, including Harrisburg, PA, Richmond, VA, and points south of

Richmond

„

„

Access to airports, with frequent connections to Baltimore-Washington International Airport,

Philadelphia International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, T.F. Green Airport, and

Bradley International Airport

„

„

22 new stations with Intercity or Regional rail service, expanding upon the 116 stations

served today

„

„

Five station upgrades to Hubs, with Regional rail and new Metropolitan service

that fills gaps in regional connectivity: Odenton, MD; Secaucus, NJ; Greens Farms,

CT; Hartford, CT; and T.F. Green Airport, RI

Trips between Boston and New York City in 2 hours 45 minutes, a decrease of

45 minutes from today’s best time

„

„

Trips between Washington, D.C. and New York City in 2 hours 10 minutes, a decrease

of 35 minutes from today’s best time

„

Regional rail and Intercity passengers
