Speakers: Marc Magliari, Public Relations Manager, Amtrak Government Affairs & Corporate Communications — Jeff Sriver, Director of Transportation Planning and Programming, Chicago Department of Transportation.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this event. You can watch the video here to learn about the CREATE Program and how it will improve passenger rail throughout the Chicago Region.
CREATE stands for Chicago Region Environmental and Transportation Efficiency Program. It is a public-private partnership between many stakeholders in the region and they are working to improve the way passengers and goods move over rail.
The stated purpose of CREATE is to increase the efficiency, capacity and safety of the region’s railroad infrastructure focusing rail traffic growth on four primary corridors that will be improved to better handle both passenger and freight traffic.
