Commuter Rail Systems

Commuter rail transportation provides fast and reliable on-time service while minimizing impacts to the environment. Because the majority of commuter rail systems operate on tracks shared with freight trains, TranSystems is in a particularly good position to devise workable solutions through our relationships in the rail industry. TranSystems has worked with the largest commuter rail systems in the country. In addition, our decades of work on freight railroad infrastructure and operations enhances our ability to generate workable designs and credible cost estimates for commuter rail systems. We are frequently able to develop a lower cost solution and “best-fit” because of our understanding of the minimum needs of freight railroads. TranSystems’ substantial and growing freight railroad engineering experience provides critical support to our commuter rail practice.
