The global pandemic has dramatically altered the daily commute of millions of Americans. That has created stark challenges for transit agencies and commuter railroads across the U.S., driving down ridership and ticket revenue and blowing holes in agency budgets. But it has also created opportunities, freeing up capacity on systems that had previously been straining to accommodate surging demand.
We’ll talk with transit advocates, transit passengers, and transit representatives to hear about how agencies and railroads are responding to shifts in ridership, how they can better optimize service patterns to meet these new demands, and what Congress needs to do to assist agencies in this transition.

"I’m so proud that we came together in bipartisan fashion in the Senate to keep the Southwest Chief chugging along, and I’m grateful for this recognition from the Rail Passengers Association. This victory is a testament to what we can accomplish when we reach across the aisle and work together to advance our common interests."
