Rail

Currently there are three rail companies with tracks in the Greater Quad Cities Region. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, Canadian Pacific, and the Iowa Interstate Railroad all provide connections with other markets.  Additionally, efforts to establish passenger rail service from Chicago to Omaha via the Quad Cities continue to grow.  In 2009 initial federal funding for track improvements to a Quad Cities-to-Chicago passenger rail line was secured.  A rail map of the Region is shown below.
