​State Tool Kit – State Supported Corridors 
Surface Transportation Board rules that Amtrak methodology to allocate costs with states was reasonable.
In accordance with the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (PRIIA), Amtrak and various states have adopted a methodology to establish and allocate costs for state-supported Amtrak routes.  Affected states, other than Indiana, have adopted the methodology.  The Board finds that the methodology complies with PRIIA.

PRIIA Section 209: State Supported Corridors

Dear Current and Prospective State Partners,

Based on our responses so far, we have reserved a meeting room at the Gleacher Center at 450 North Cityfront Plaza Drive, Chicago, IL 60611 for the PRIIA Section 209 meeting on April 20-21. The Gleacher Center is the downtown campus of the University of Chicago, located blocks away from the Loop. More information is available at http://www.gleachercenter.com/.

I've also provided a listing of nearby hotels provided to us by the Gleacher Center. We hope this will assist you in planning your trip to Chicago.

If you haven’t already done so, please let me know if you are able to attend or if you have any other questions. We look forward to seeing you later this month.
