A big thank you to everyone who responded to the State Rail Plan Survey. We received over 1,000 responses!
This survey highlighted what people who live, work, and play in the District thought of as the most important considerations for the future of passenger and freight rail. People provided input on why they do our do not ride rail. For freight rail, people provided opinions on potential freight issues as well as consideration of freight facilities in the District. Attendees were also asked their opinion on what areas DDOT should prioritize for the rail network including expanding passenger rail connectivity, achieving a state of good repair for rail assets, improving rail connectivity with public transit, and enhancing safety and security. DDOT is using the SRP survey responses to shape the development of the vision and goals for District of Columbia’s passenger and freight rail system.
