CrossRail Chicago is the key to improving passenger rail throughout America, and now is the time to make it happen!
Please work to fully fund the Federal Railroad Administration so that critical projects like CrossRail Chicago can be built.
Fast, frequent, and affordable trains will give us better access to opportunities and lead to more prosperous regions. Americans will have increased freedom to travel, and the efficiency of trains will slash air, noise, and water pollution in the process.
CrossRail Chicago is a practical and affordable way to build the essential core of our nation’s railroad network. It will upgrade and connect several existing rail corridors to create electrified, high-capacity routes into and through Chicago. It will also expand Chicago Union Station as the hub of the nation’s passenger rail network. CrossRail can expand service to hundreds of cities and towns across the country.
Like many other rail projects, CrossRail benefits many states and requires a strong federal program to achieve success.
Please ensure that Americans have access to safe, convenient, and affordable travel by fully funding our federal rail program through the Federal Railroad Administration.
