The State Rail Plan is a mode-specific plan that builds on the Minnesota GO vision. We're updating our State Rail Plan to guide the development of Minnesota’s rail system for the next 20 years. We're committed to hearing from everyone in Minnesota about the value and impact of railroads as an element of the state's Multimodal Transportation System.

  • Welcome to the Minnesota State Rail Plan Public Engagement Survey.


    As part of the State Rail Plan update, the Minnesota Department of Transportation would like your input! This is the second survey we have hosted which will assist in the development of an overall vision for the state’s freight and passenger rail network and its future development. The State Rail Plan will identify priority rail corridors, programs, and projects that offer improvements or expansion for passenger and freight travel in and out of Minnesota. The survey should take about 5-7 minutes to complete.


    We would appreciate your time and feedback to help improve passenger rail services in Minnesota

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.


    Welcome to our initial Public Engagement Survey! The Minnesota State Rail Plan update project is the process MnDOT will use to craft an overall vision for the state’s freight and passenger rail network and facilitate its future development. To accomplish this, we will analyze critical elements of the freight and passenger rail system that influence transportation access and economic development across the state. The updated plan will inventory the existing rail system by assembling data from project research and a broad based public engagement effort. The project will evaluate the strengths and opportunities presented by the system, identify priority rail corridors for passenger and freight movements, and examine the programs and projects necessary to improve or expand passenger and freight travel in and out of Minnesota.



    The Minnesota Department of Transportation would like your input, Please take 3-5 minutes to provide feedback and help us improve railroads in Minnesota.
