Join All Aboard Washington on our Train Trek across the Northwest! We are hosting a series of meetings covering cities along the East-West rail corridor that will benefit from daytime passenger train service between Seattle and Spokane.
All Aboard Washington will wrap up its 2020 Train Trek on Saturday, December 5th in Auburn. Auburn's huge residential population and industrial base make it popular, both as a place to live and as a commuting destination. It faces many of the same challenges as its neighbors: a large influx of new residents seeking affordable housing, a lack of open space to grow, and paralyzing traffic congestion. As the crossroads between the proposed East-West service over Stampede Pass and the existing North-South Amtrak Cascades, Auburn is the perfect setting for All Aboard Washington to unveil its vision for the future of the Northwest's passenger rail network.
We will begin with a discussion of the current crisis and how we believe Washington and Oregon must act to preserve and improve our existing services. Next, we will detail our goals for expanding passenger trains to every corner of the Northwest, including Idaho and Montana. Finally, we will unveil our vision for how Amtrak Cascades can support the region's long-term push for high-speed rail and sustainable hub cities between the major Cascadian metropolitan areas.
Please join us in this online finale of the AAWA Train Trek, scheduled for Saturday, December 5th, 2020.
Admission is free with a suggested donation of $10 so that AAWA can continue to host these important and needed conversations about the future of passenger trains in Washington.
