The Illinois Department of Transportation and local leaders are investigating the potential of passenger rail service between Peoria and Chicago. Passenger rail service would enhance the transportation system of the greater Peoria region and Central Illinois, provide an additional mode of transportation, support anticipated growth, improve regional connectivity, promote opportunities for businesses and tourism, and support diversity and inclusion throughout the region.
