Vermont’s economic future depends on our ability to meet tomorrow’s transport needs in the most efficient, economical, and environmentally sound manner. Growing Vermont’s investment in rail infrastructure and expanding passenger and freight rail services in our communities can help meet that need. First, we must persuade political leaders, industry and investors to restore railroads to become the leading edge of our transportation network in the 21st century.

 

Add your voice to the growing chorus of residents, business leaders, and travelers who support VRAN’s work. Together, we can move this agenda forward. Help us bend the curve:
