Zoom at 10:00 PT, 11:00 MT, 12:00 CT, 13:00 ET

Speaker: Joe Shacter, Senior Manager, State Corridors, Amtrak

Join us for a discussion about the Chicago Access Program, a group of high-impact projects that will increase capacity and improve reliability for trains entering and exiting Chicago. Amtrak is taking the lead on this program that will improve Chicago Union Station, create more routes into the city and open up a variety of new service options. They have already applied for a Mega Grant and partnered with stakeholders who will help fund this $850 million project.

We will break down the projects included in the Chicago Access Program, explain why it will impact train service far beyond Chicago, and how it sets the stage for additional improvements to our national rail network.
