Issue / Railroads

Railroads have been a vital aspect of the transportation system for nearly 200 years. Moving both passengers and freight, railroads offer high capacity and efficient transportation options.

Passenger systems, whether through Amtrak or various commuter railroads, require public assistance and either operate on their own track or pay to use freight railroad-own track.
