The nationís seven largest rail transit agencies deliver over three billion passenger trips each year, relying on over 6,000 miles of track, 1,700 passenger stations and close to 15,000 rail vehicles to do so. In a period of rising congestion and fuel prices, these services, and the infrastructure and rolling stock that support them, are critical to the transportation needs and quality of life of the communities they serve. At the same time, this infrastructure is aging and the level of reinvestment appears insufficient to address a growing backlog of deferred investment needs. The main objective of this study is to assess the level of capital investment required to attain and maintain a state of good repair (SGR) for the nationís seven largest rail transit operators. The study also considers these reinvestment needs within the context of past levels of Federal funding support as well as potential changes to the current Federal program. Figures.
