ABSTRACT: The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) are conducting a feasibility and planning study – the Northern New England Intercity Rail Initiative (NNEIRI) – that examines the opportunities and impacts of adding more frequent and higher speed intercity passenger rail service on two major rail routes, the Inland Route and the Boston-to-Montreal Route (the NNEIRI Study). The Inland Route runs between Boston, Massachusetts and New Haven, Connecticut via Springfield, Massachusetts. The Boston-to-Montreal Route runs between Boston and Montreal, Quebec via Springfield. The two routes share trackage between Boston and Springfield, Massachusetts, and are collectively identified in this document as the NNEIRI Corridor.
