NORTHEAST CORRIDOR HIGH SPEED RAIL PASSENGER SERVICE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT. TASK 1. DEMAND ANALYSIS

Engineering, technical and financial studies have been performed: (a) to assist the Federal Railroad Administration in the development of detailed improvement plans, and (b) to provide inputs to the United States Railway Association for the development of the preliminary and final plans. As a basis for developing detailed improvement plans, performing operational simulations, selecting and sizing physical facilities, and estimating costs, estimates are required for future service needs covering all types of rail traffic in the Northeast Corridor, i.e., passenger services-CorridorRail, suburban and inter-corridor; and freight services-intra-corridor, inter-corridor and local. The findings and estimates derived from the demand analysis are given in this report for 1990 high and low potential demand levels.
