The Northeast Corridor Improvement Project, a major public investment in improved intercity passenger transportation, is analyzed. Results of the Amtrak operations in the Corridor in 1976 and 1977 are presented. Amtrak projections for the Corridor during the period of construction and facilities supporting improved service goals are described. The report establishes a framework for comparing service options after NECIP completion; describes the social and economic implication and public costs and benefits of still further improvement; and evaluates possible rail responses to such additional transportation needs.
