2 Purpose: The purpose of the Project is to examine and recommend ways of introducing higher passenger train speeds on the Empire Corridor and ways to improve reliability, travel times, service frequency, and passenger amenities, with the goal/objective of attracting additional passengers and being more competitive with other modes of intercity travel. Need: The sustainability of our local state and national economy is dependent upon a diversity of transportation options. For High Speed Intercity Passenger Rail (HSIPR) to be competitive with other modes, the following needs must be met: Attract Ridership Reduce Infrastructure Constraints Accommodate Forecasted Growth
3 Performance Goals and Objectives: Improve system wide on time performance to 90 percent, Reduce travel time along all segments of the Empire Corridor, Increase the frequency of service (number of daily round trips) along Empire Corridor West beyond the existing four daily round trips, Divert a measurable number of travelers from other modes; especially automobiles, Empire Corridor Economic Growth.
4 463 mile corridor Niagara Falls to New York City Shared freight/passenger alignment
5 Frequency 4 roundtrips per day between Albany and Buffalo 13 roundtrips between Albany and NYC Reliability/On Time Performance 77 percent overall Albany to NYC 84 percent West of Albany 57 percent Trip Time (Examples) Albany to Syracuse 2:39 hours Albany to Buffalo Depew 4:54 hours NYC to Buffalo Depew 7:34 hours
6 The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has established three levels of High Speed Rail service, as well as key planning guidelines.
7 Locations with too few tracks Lower speeds for freight impact passenger rail speeds on shared lines Current conditions limit speed in some locations Not enough trains between some cities Travel time is not comparable with air or auto travel Train trips take longer than scheduled
9 Operations / Service Improvements Maximum Authorized Speed (MAS) Frequency of Service Schedule Enhancements (including Express) Physical Improvements Track / Bridges Signals / Grade Crossings Stations / Facilities New Equipment (Locomotives / Coaches) Capital Costs (Programmatic Level) Operations & Maintenance (O&M) Cost Estimates
10 Operations Analysis Trip Time On Time Performance (OTP) Ridership
11 Each step up in speed requires improvements to infrastructure & maintenance 79 mph: (Class 4) trains rely on visual track side signals current top speed along the Empire Corridor West 90 mph: (Class 5) Requires advanced train control system 110 mph: (Class 6) Requires both advanced train control system and straighter and flatter track geometry 125 mph: (Class 7) Requires electrified operation in addition to advanced train control system and even straighter and flatter track geometry. 160 mph: (Class 8) Requires electrified dynamic tilt trains, like the Amtrak Acela, that provide faster operating speeds on curves 220 mph: Requires still straighter and flatter track geometry, tilt capable coaches, and higher power (and more costly) locomotives to overcome wind resistance and maintain speeds up grades.

16 SOUTH Completed in 2005 as the blueprint for improvements to the Hudson Line Corridor between Albany and New York, Reflects technical leadership of NYSDOT, Metro North, Amtrak, CSX Transportation and Canadian Pacific Railway, Improvements organized into short, medium and long term improvements, Improvements will support 2:20 trip time with five stops, 2:10 trip time for non stop operations (both 10 minute trip time improvements versus today).

18 All findings based on preliminary data.
19 Forecasted market results shown here are preliminary, reflect dedicated third track for significant portions of the Corridor and are based on estimates (without full network simulation) of schedule margin required to compensate for congestion impacts. This initial analysis will be used to evaluate optimal alternative configurations and will change as the alternatives are developed with accompanying network simulation results.
20 Currently, cities west of Albany have low boardings due to limited frequency, slow travel time and poor reliability. Car travel dominates for distances less than 100 miles
21 Additional Benefits of High Speed Rail Fosters sustainable land use and development patterns Encourages Transit Oriented Development (TOD) by catalyzing station area development and promoting economic revitalization Reduced Sprawl Infrastructure Efficiency Reduces pressure on existing transportation infrastructure by attracting riders from other modes of travel; highway and air travel
