NEC FUTURE: Selected Alternative -- July 2017
"The Selected Alternative is a corridor-wide vision for the NEC that includes improvements to grow the role of rail within the transportation system of the Northeast. The Selected Alternative prioritizes a corridor-wide commitment to the existing NEC, brings it to a state of good repair, and provides the additional capacity and service enhancements necessary to address passenger rail needs through 2040 and beyond. The Selected Alternative will improve NEC rail service by establishing corridor-wide objectives for service and performance, and integrated operations for both Intercity and Regional rail services."
