FRA Provides Grant To Study Return Of Amtrak Passenger Service Between Birmingham, Montgomery And Mobile, Alabama

On August 16, 2012, the Federal Rail Administration (FRA) issued a news release indicating that had obligated $100,000.00 to the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs to study the restoration of Amtrak passenger rail service that would connect the existing portion of Amtrak’s Crescent Route at Birmingham to a possible future route between Mobile and Florida.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood was quoted in the news release as saying “President Obama’s support for an America built to last is putting people back to work across the country building railroads, roads, bridges and other projects that will mean better, safer transportation and strong economic foundation for years to come.”
