The Massachusetts Railroad Association (MRA) is the trade association representing 11 freight-hauling railroads that operate across the Commonwealth along with many supporting businesses that provide goods and services to the railroad industry. The MRA advances the interests of its members as they go about the critical work of supplying freight rail transportation for the benefit of the industries and businesses of Massachusetts, and those they employ. MRA seeks to unify the freight rail sector around common interests and needs. Through outreach and advocacy, the association educates decision-makers and opinion leaders alike on the economic and environmental advantages and benefits of freight rail transportation.
