About the NEC Commission

The Northeast Corridor

The Northeast Corridor (NEC) is the rail backbone of the Northeast region and the busiest passenger rail corridor in the United Sates. It connects eight states and the District of Columbia and each day serves 800,000 riders and 2,000 commuter, intercity, and freight trains. | Learn More » NEC Overview

Partnership for the Northeast Corridor

The Corridor’s partners are committed to modernizing the Northeast Corridor (NEC) rail network. Because the rail system serves multiple states and crosses many jurisdictions, federal, state, and local governments in the region and rail service providers must join together to successfully develop and implement an effective modernization program. The Commission was chartered to facilitate collaborative planning and unified action.

In the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008, Congress recognized the need to improve coordination on the Corridor and amended Section 24905 to direct the Secretary of Transportation to establish the NEC Commission to promote mutual cooperation and planning and to advise Congress on Corridor policy. The Commission is composed of one member from each of the NEC states (Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland) and the District of Columbia; four members from Amtrak; and five members from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Commission also includes non-voting representatives from NEC freight railroads, states with feeder corridors that connect to the NEC, and commuter authorities not directly represented by a Commission member.

The Commission provides coordinated regional leadership to focus on near-term strategies to stabilize the NEC and establish a foundation for future growth.  | Learn More » Commission Members
