Assessment of proposals to improve intercity rail transportation service requires careful evaluation of their economic, developmental and environmental impacts. This paper addresses the problem of providing accurate prediction of future ridership and the extent of ridership diversion from alternative travel modes. The paper identifies critical issues in rail ridership prediction and outlines alternative approaches to resolve these issues.
