 Commuter Rail Committee

This committee promotes commuter railroads and works to address their unique regulatory, legislative, and operational issues. The Commuter Rail Committee, through its Operators Subcommittee, is working on a very active agenda including:

  • establishing Passenger Rail Standards and Recommended Practices;
  • strengthening the Commuter Rail System Safety Program;
  • and enhancing the ability of passenger railroads to access freight railroad rights of way.

The committee also jointly sponsors, with the Rail Transit Committee, APTA's annual Rail Conference.
