Kentucky-Indiana Rail Advocates Mission Statement


As Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee prepare for the new century, it is apparent that better forms of Public Transportation need to be developed for their citizens. Considering current environmental and economic factors, modern rail transportation is an obvious solution.

Both the Kentuckiana Rail Task Force(K.R.T.F.) and the Tennessee Association of Railroad Passengers(TARP), are sister organizations working together in the development and restoration of passenger rail service in the mid south.

Our Accomplishments Include:

  • Public Support in the development of a M.I.S. study on transit alternatives for Metro Louisville, Kentucky
  • Participation in a Commuter Rail Demonstration in Nashville, Tennessee
  • Exhibits at the Kentucky State Fair and other expositions
  • Operation of numerous passenger awareness excursions on the Nashville and Eastern Railroad including Easter and Santa trains.
  • Support Services for Amtrak for the Chicago to Louisville Thruway Bus Connecting Services
  • Continuing liasion with Amtrak and the National Association of Railroad Passengers to encourage new services to our states.

Current Projects Include

  • The development of expanded thruway bus connections to the current Amtrak system in the South and Midwest
  • Developing cooperation between our states and various inter state rail compacts including high speed rail and intermodal services
  • Improved funding for expanded Amtrak, Commuter and Light Rail Projects.
Future Goals include the restoration of passenger train services to our major communities in our states including Louisville, Nashville, Lexington, Knoxville and Chattanooga to points in the Midwest and Deep South.
