The Georgia Rail Passenger Program (GRPP) consists of a comprehensive plan for two distinct kinds of rail transportation: commuter and intercity trains. Commuter trains would serve inbound commuters going to work in the metro Atlanta area in the morning and then traveling home in the evening. Intercity trains would connect communities throughout Georgia and the Southeast.
The GRPP contains seven commuter rail lines, seven lines of intercity rail service as well as the Multi-Modal Passenger Terminal (MMPT).
Intercity Passenger Rail Service in Georgia is provided by the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, known commonly as “AMTRAK.”
Georgia's seven commuter lines serve 55 communities. Once the 425-mile system is complete, commuter trains will transport over 40,000 people to and from work everyday. Intercity trains will run on over a thousand miles of Georgia's railroads, connecting communities all over the state.
