MOMENTUM GROWING AS RAIL SERVICE WITHIN REACH FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE HURRICANE KATRINA
The Southern Rail Commission received a report from Amtrak that outlines options and critical steps for the restoration of passenger rail service that was never restored after Hurricane Katrina.
“We have an unprecedented amount of support from elected officials and partners from all over the Gulf Coast region,” said Gregory B. White, chairman of the Southern Rail Commission. “These leaders understand that rail means increased economic, cultural and industrial opportunity. And increased opportunity translates to increased quality of life for our vibrant communities.”
