What is AREMA?

The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) is a professional association formed on October 1, 1997, when four railway engineering organizations merged into one. These predecessor organizations, each having over 100 years of service to the rail industry, provide a rich history and exemplary legacy in which AREMA has its roots. AREMA’s Mission is “The development and advancement of both technical and practical knowledge and recommended practices pertaining to the design, construction and maintenance of railway infrastructure.”
