Light and heavy-duty vehicles are the principal sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transportation sector, and most policy discussions and media coverage today focus on new  technologies and changes in mobility models as the means to reduce GHG from this sector. 

But what’s being done in other sectors?  

Railroads are a key aspect of the nation’s transport system, with a network of over 140,000 miles of rail crisscrossing the U.S.  Freight railroads account for 40 percent of long-distance freight volume.  Over 12.7 billion passenger miles were traveled in 2019 on commuter rail.  

Join us for this installment of our 2021 virtual event series “Beyond the Highway: RAIL” to examine the innovations and strategies for improving efficiency and reducing emissions in the passenger and freight rail sectors.

This session features business leaders in advanced rail power technologies – Caterpillar and Cummins – who will share insights on the state of rail technology and highlight efficiency and opportunity for reducing GHG and other emissions from this sector today and into the future. 

There is no cost to attend the event but space is limited so register now!

Who should attend: Federal transportation, infrastructure and environmental policymakers, state and local policymakers; NGOs active on rail issues, trade and popular media covering this sector, rail operations customers and users, and others with a stake in the rail industry.
