Long Distance Trains: A Foundation for National Mobility, a white paper by NARP and the Midwest High-Speed Rail Association, aims to correct common misconceptions about Amtrak's national network of overnight trains and to demonstrate the valuable role they play in connecting small towns and rural areas to larger cities, with multiple city-pair "corridors" served by one highly productive train.
NARP believes that the long distance trains should remain a federal responsibility. which was reaffirmed in the 2008 law. We believe connecting all parts of the country with reliable, affordable passenger train service is an important federal policy objective.
