Building a New Era of Passenger Rail in America

Today, Amtrak is delivering a new era of mobility by investing in new tunnels and bridges, modern trains, enhanced stations and facilities, and more. To fully understand Amtrak’s future, one must also consider the company’s past, including many key assets that were built more than a century ago. This keynote will provide key insights into Amtrak’s challenges and opportunities as the company and its partners rebuild critical assets and transform American passenger rail for the 21st century.

Laura Mason is Executive Vice President, Capital Delivery, serving in this role since January 2022. Laura leads an organization focused on developing and executing all non-recurring and non-Information Technology capital projects, which together allow Amtrak to deliver high-quality service to its customers. With over $50 billion of critical infrastructure, facility and fleet investments in planning and development, Laura leads Amtrak’s efforts to turn its ambitious plans into reality.
