Departmental Papers (ESE)

Abstract

This report presents a plan for an investment, physical and operational upgrading of the RGR System. The intent of this plan should be creation of a modern Regional Metrorail System, more similar to such electrified regional rapid transit systems as the Washington Metrorail, Atlanta's MARTA and San Francisco's BART than to diesel-powered commuter rail systems, such as the Chicago METRA or the new Los Angeles Metrolink.
