Increasing the number of passengers who can ride your rail system

While the growing demand for transit across the country is a boon for the industry, increased ridership can mean crowded platforms, trains, and possible missed connections if the system does not expand its capacity to carry more passengers. Through the Federal Transit Administration's Capital Investment Program, agencies are investing in corridor-based projects to increase core capacity. Hear from our speakers as they discuss their challenges and solutions for addressing core capacity, ranging from technical improvements in train control and station enhancements, to analytic methods that help identify additional improvements and impacts to program success.
