The Barrington Institute is an independent nonprofit organization working to effect global change through policy research and learning initiatives.
Our work involves collaborative research and the creation of toolkits, case study collections, and print and online publications.
The Barrington Institute’s initial project is the Train Campaign, the rail advocacy organization for Berkshire and Litchfield counties and the surrounding region, sharing a vision for passenger rail as the essential framework for efficient, sustainable transportation in the 21st century. The Train Campaign supports passenger rail initiatives including the East-West Rail Study and the Berkshire Housatonic Line. Our mission is to foster a robust network of rail transportation options.
