Nothing is more important to our future than making efficient use of the wheel.

OnTrackNorthAmerica is leading the transformation in how we measure, plan, and invest in transportation systems.

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 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.

 Whole Systems Thinking: A 13-Point Vision 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.

Effective plans require
economic, social and environmental metrics.

It’s time for us to think together.
