  • Abstract:
    The United States possesses an effective and efficient surface transportation infrastructure that

    promotes both the well-being of its citizens as well as important economic and national security

    goals. The level of security afforded this infrastructure is relatively low compared to the security

    enhancements recently implemented in the commercial aviation sector. However, there is

    sufficient reason to believe that the security levels of the surface transportation modes need to be

    raised as the threat level increases and the vulnerabilities of the current infrastructure become

    apparent. There are potential threat scenarios where a significant loss of human life or a major

    disruption to a key segment of the nation’s transportation infrastructure could occur. Given this

    fact, it is essential that well-planned, coordinated actions be taken to reduce the possibility that

    such events occur. Such actions should represent a coordinated approach by a partnership of

    public and private sector institutions to: identify vulnerabilities and threats; and enhance the

    security of key surface transportation infrastructure segments and operations.
