Re-Discovering Rail: The Smart, Green Alternative

Wednesday, April 9, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., at the Municipal Art Society

Despite 20th century predictions of its imminent demise, passenger train travel is thriving from France to China. In the U.S. rail development is hindered by lackluster federal support, but today state and city governments are responding to traffic congestion by coming together with other stakeholders to develop high-speed and commuter networks that are transforming local transit patterns. Panelists will discuss what is happening elsewhere and then consider the local and regional obstacles to improving passenger service — and how those obstacles can be overcome.

Panelists include: Don Phillips, transportation analyst and former transportation reporter, The Washington Post & International Herald Tribune; and Walter Zullig, Jr., legal and transportation consultant and counsel emeritus, MetroNorth Railroad
