The National Association of Railroad Passengers (NARP) has rebranded itself as the Rail Passengers Association.

The organization unveiled the new name at its annual conference earlier this month. The brand switch, which coincides with the association's 50th anniversary, will herald "a new age for advocacy for rail passengers in North America," Rail Passengers Association officials said in a press release.

"Our commitment to fighting for passenger rail is stronger now that it has ever been before," said Jim Mathews, president and chief executive officer. "As we look to the future, we intend to fight for modern, interconnected transportation systems that meet the needs of train riders today and in the future."

The Rail Passengers Association also has launched a new website and relocated its headquarters in Washington, D.C., to a larger office.
