The Massachusetts State Rail Plan provides an overall plan for the development of rail transportation in the Commonwealth.

About the State Rail Plan

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has issued the final 2018 State Rail Plan. The plan outlines the Commonwealth’s long-term plan for the statewide rail system.

To meet Federal Railroad Administration requirements, the 2018 State Rail Plan provides an overview of:

  • The existing rail system
  • The system’s overall role in the transportation network
  • How the system is financed
  • Near term priorities
  • A long-term investment strategy

What's New

The final State Rail Plan is now available on the documents page. There is a new chapter, Chapter 6, which details the public engagement effort and summarizes the updates to the plan from the draft version.
