Association information

The American Railway Development Association (ARDA) is a not-for-profit educational trade association founded in 1906 to promote Economic Development, Real Estate Development, Technology, and Environmental Activities of North American Railroads. ARDA achieves this through the advancement of ideas and education of members to further promote the effectiveness of railway development.

ARDA encourages membership from all classes of railroads throughout North America. Members also include professionals from other associations, agencies, and railroad service partners that have a direct effect on rail business today. ARDA's membership variety provides a wide perspective on issues facing the railroad industry in the 21st Century.

ARDA's committee structure and its events not only provide informative programs, but also allow members to network with their industry peers. ARDA members include representatives from all of the Class 1 railroads, several shortline railroads, as well as professionals in real estate, economic development, environmental, engineering, legal, and other disciplines. ARDA events are excellent educational and networking opportunities!
