OnTrackNorthAmerica is a nonprofit transportation think tank—oriented toward action planning—and action.
The Objective: A world-leading, consciously designed intermodal freight transport system—that is both catalyst for economic growth, and environmentally sustainable.
The Means: Tools and initiatives for planners that best leverage the inherent advantages of each transport mode. Together with our growing circle of expert advisors and supporters we are building the following…
The Rail Vs. Roads Data Comparison Project: In modern infrastructure development, data drives decision-making. As our society searches for more sustainable solutions, it’s time to gather all the data… and make sure it’s put it use by planners, government leaders and stakeholders.
The Freight Transportation Lifecycle Project: A fully comprehensive method of benefit/cost analysis answering the needs and concerns of 21st century infrastructure planners and stakeholders.
IntelliConference: A revolutionary approach to group dialogue. These interactions, whether conducted asynchronously online, or in-person, make judicious use of each participant’s time, driving efficiently toward clarity, alignment and action.
Vision For American Rail In 13 Steps: In the words of our founder: “Our continued underutilization of rail transportation, in spite of its energy, capital, and space efficiency, provides a clear example of how conventional thinking is not serving society.” Here’s how that situation can be addressed.
