Our Message?

  • Don't downsize the vision and purpose of the Amtrak Cascades, our passenger rail system connecting 14 towns and cities from Portland to Seattle to Vancouver, B.C.

  • Add sections of 110 mph higher speed track just for passenger trains -- essential for fast, frequent, reliable service that will draw people out of their cars and off congested highways.

  • We need trip times of 2.5 hours between SEA-PDX and 2.7 hours between SEA-VBC.

  • Upgrade Amtrak Cascades so train travel is truly competitive with cars and short-distance flights -- and provide energy-efficient transportation for people who don't drive! 

If you are part of an organization that would like to co-sponsor and speak at the press conference, contact Amy.
