Project Description

This Railway Reform Toolkit aims to provide an easy-to-use resource on the rail industry—what it is and what it does best—and to provide an experience-based set of best practices to aid in the planning and execution of railway reforms. This toolkit is based on international experiences with railway reform under a range of railway organizational forms—state agencies, state-owned, or private enterprises. The toolkit should be particularly useful to those thinking about transitions from one organizational form to another and for those seeking to improve railway per-formance through investment, reorganization, or changes in government policy.
