The new Fall Oregon Rail newsletter is available at this link: Oregon Passenger Rail Fall Newsletter
The next Corvallis-Albany Citizen Advisory Committee meeting is happening at LBCC on 10/15 at 6:00pm, and I will be there, advocating for an Oregon route with a station in Corvallis, and the least amount of shared freight rail.
Oregon Passenger Rail Study
The Oregon Department of Transportation is studying ways to improve intercity passenger rail service between the Eugene-Springfield urban area and the Portland-Vancouver urban area. The study will help decide on a general passenger rail route and evaluate options for train frequency, trip time, and improving on-time performance. The project team has evaluated preliminary alternatives for passenger rail routes and is ready to share the results with the public and get your feedback.
