Report Card for Pennsylvania's Infrastructure Featured Category - Passenger Rail
The Northeast Corridor Commission has identified there is a $38 billion backlog in State of Good Repair needs to the Northeast Corrid.
Much of Pennsylvania’s passenger rail infrastructure is over 80 years old and is in need of on-going repairs and/or replacement. Passenger rail agencies have demonstrated their ongoing commitment to safety with advancement of Positive Train Control (PTC) installation within the federally mandated deadlines, which will help prevent major accidents and save lives. When Act 89 was passed in 2013, passenger rail agencies were quick to respond with additional construction to rebuild the system and explore longer term efforts to increase capacity. The demand for passenger rail service continues to grow across Pennsylvania and should be studied further, particularly in the western part of the state, to maximize ridership opportunities. Continued funding is needed to improve existing infrastructure and provide expanded service throughout the state.
