Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG)
The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) intends to hire a consultant(s) to conduct an economic impact study of proposed rail improvements in the region and connecting to the region. Following the opening of the Hartford Line rail service, the region gained a frequent commuter rail link to New York City. Proposed track and station improvements would provide frequent commuter rail service between Hartford and Springfield. A study is underway in Massachusetts to analyze the feasibility of providing commuter rail service between Springfield and Worcester (where an existing rail line connects to Boston). While standard benefic-cost analyses have been conducted for previous rail investments, and one will be conducted for new investments, no study has looked at the potential for broader economic benefits, such as increased development in station areas or greater attraction to the labor force. An understanding of such benefits is essential to fully assessing which investments will be the most impactful.
CRCOG will procure consultant services in accordance with the established policy of CRCOG. The project will commence upon selection of a consultant and issuance of a notice to proceed. Learn more. 
Proposals are due at CRCOG on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at 2pm.
