RAIL Magazine Cover Image

RAIL Magazine, Connecting Communities by Moving People, is a quarterly publication produced by the Community Transportation Association of America. In its pages, we chronicle the resurgence and revitalization of the passenger rail in all its forms - intercity, commuter, subways and metros, light rail, streetcars and trolleys, and more - across North America. We focus on how communities of all sizes build innovative, cost-efficient and successful rail operations to better mobilize people. The stories of these vital rail systems are told not only in the kind of equipment they operate or the stations that they build, but the equally important elements of community partnerships, intermodalism, land-use and development, investment strategies, and other aspects that are essential to vital passenger rail networks.

Each edition of RAIL offers thoughtful commentary from leaders in the passenger rail industry, news updates on rail projects across the continent, in-depth features chronicling the best in passenger rail, and helpful reviews of rail equipment, books and media, and more, all of which convey the history and direction of contemporary passenger rail.
