RAIL Magazine Launches the Campaign for Better Rail Decisions

For 15 years, the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) published print and digital editions of RAIL Magazine, a publication focused on telling the story of how passenger rail – ranging from high-speed and intercity service to streetcars and trolleys – connects communities across North America. While we no longer publish standard editions of RAIL, we have actually broadened our coverage and audience through our @RAILMag Twitter handle.

As we’ve engaged the North American passenger rail community – leaders and staff at transit agencies, elected officials, advocates and observers – it’s become obvious that decision-making related to rail and other high-capacity transit projects often delivers less-than-ideal results, producing limited ridership success, threatening or cancelling projects and not making the best use of public investment. As a result, RAIL Magazine is launching the Campaign for Better Rail Decisions, which will produce resources, analysis and connections to help inform both decision-makers and the public that holds them accountable.
