Mission Statement

The Northeast Corridor Commission’s mission is to bring the states, commuter agencies, Amtrak, and US DOT together to modernize and improve the Northeast Corridor rail system through increased collaboration, transparency, and accountability. Through this partnership, the Commission’s members can achieve more together than by working alone.

Section 212 of P.L. 110-432 required the Northeast Corridor Commission to develop a statement of goals concerning the future of the Northeast Corridor. These goals were transmitted to Congress in July 2012.
