The Commuter Rail Committee promotes commuter railroads and works to address their unique regulatory, legislative, and operational issues. The Commuter Rail Committee, through its CEOs 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.
APTA Committees and Subcommittees are now part of APTAconnect, APTA’s members-only, secure online community space specifically designed to connect you to your peers, colleagues, and friends.
Our online communities are aligned with APTA’s highly valued committees. If you’re a member of a committee, you’re automatically a member of its corresponding online community.
Committee membership is open to all employees of APTA members in good standing, and participation in one or more committees/subcommittees is encouraged and welcomed.
Except for those committees listed as “by appointment only,” you may join a committee or subcommittee by submitting the Committee Interest Form. Upon receipt of your request, you will be added to the committee/subcommittee and contacted by the staff advisor.
