Mission Statement

The Mission of the Caucus is to advance the construction of a high-speed and intercity passenger rail (HSIPR) network across the United States by working in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Transportation, state and local governments, Amtrak, freight railroads, rail suppliers, labor organizations, and other passenger rail-focused associations. The Caucus will support federal legislative and funding policies to ensure the long-term viability of the HSIPR network. The Caucus will also conduct and encourage public education efforts to inform American taxpayers of the importance of HSIPR to the efficiency and safety of our Nation’s broader surface transportation network.
