The Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) Program funds projects that improve the safety, efficiency, and reliability of intercity passenger and freight rail. With over $1.33B of funding available, now is the time to capitalize! Modernize your fleet with a platform that supports safety and operations. Pairing a technical modernization like Wi-Tronix with physical infrastructure improvements will improve your Benefit Cost Ratio, increasing likelihood of funding. A digital IoT platform such as Violet Edge checks the safety and operational boxes grant funders want, as it delivers immediate and long-term value for the railroad, as well as value for the community and tax payers.
Ensure your grant project makes your railroad: Safer, more efficient, and more reliable
It should also benefit: The federal government/federal supply chain, local community, economy, and overall reliability
By combining components when applying for grants, not only may benefits be delivered, but they can also be documented, managed, and measured for the benefit of decision-makers
