Langerholc Issues Statement on Increased Passenger Rail Service in Western Pennsylvania

JOHNSTOWN – Sen. Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35), chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, issued a statement today regarding the historic agreement to commence passenger rail improvements:

“Today’s agreement moves us one step closer to increased passenger service. This has been a top legislative priority of mine since being elected to the Senate and is the culmination of broad bipartisan work across many levels. The agreement will provide for the construction of upgraded rail lines, passenger platforms and other critical improvements. I look forward to the day in the very near future when Western Pennsylvanians will have additional trains.”

Today’s statement is in addition to Sen. Langerholc’s statement circulated on February 18, 2022, when he attended a press conference announcing the initial plans.
