160,000 miles of track, 76,000 rail bridges and 800 tunnels…

U.S. ranks well behind many other countries in overall infrastructure quality in 2014-2015, coming in at 16th.

By 2020 the transportation infrastructure investment gap will be -$1 trillion. Investing in rail expansion would have many long-term benefits both financial and ecological. It is estimated that traffic congestion caused U.S. drivers to waste around 3 billion gallons of fuel in 2014. When time, fuel, car maintenance and lost productivity are factored in, the price tag is a staggering $160 billion dollars nationwide. Investing in passenger and freight rail expansion makes financial sense. This infographic highlights some of the other costs and benefits investing in rail expansion would provide.
