      TDI Rail Transportation Committee

      Purpose: to advance the science and civil engineering applications of the rail transportation mode, that is currently transporting seventy percent of the total multi-modal freight by tonnage, and that is subjected to new passenger transportation challenges in the USA. The central purpose of the Rail Transportation Committee (RTC) is to reflect the growing interest in rail transport to further enhance the benefits inherent to the rail mode, such as high efficiency of energy use, effectiveness of land utilization, direct access to city centers, and major environmental advantages. Also theoretical and practical aspects of high-speed rail passenger transportation, in the high-speed rail field, major reductions of travel times and unequaled travel safety. Theoretical and practical aspects of high- speed rail passenger transportation are, therefore, an indispensable component of the RTC's activities, that involve also technological and economical issues of multipurpose utilization of existing active and inactive railway lines and right of ways.
