155-mph commuter trains share the stage with 200-mph long distance trains in Shanghai.

Cities across the world are finding ways to meet the transportation needs of their residents by investing in rail infrastructure. Some notable improvements that will make cities like Denver, Toronto and London more competitive include:

  • New electrified Airport Express trains that are faster, cleaner and more efficient.
  • Linking existing rail lines to each other to allow people to reach places and opportunities that were previously inaccessible
  • High-speed trains using conventional track to pass through congested cities where new construction is difficult
  • Intercity and commuter trains sharing high-speed track to reduce trip times

Investing in modern technology and making the most out of existing infrastructure are doable, cost-effective ways to dramatically increase a region's connectivity. CrossRail Chicago looks to bring some of these established, successful methods to Chicago's transportation network.
