Together, we can expand the Greater Northwest's rail network.

Third Annual Greater Northwest Rail Summit, October 8-9, 2024, Spokane, WA

The Summit brings together rail experts and advocates to continue working toward restoring a true national rail network that includes service to the largely underserved Greater Northwest. Chances for better rail options are improving! The Federal Railroad Administration's Long-Distance Service Study is recommending 15 routes to expand the nation's passenger rail system.

The former North Coast Hiawatha route, serving Seattle, Yakima, Spokane, southern Montana, the Twin Cities and Chicago is one of the recommended routes.

Also selected by the Long-Distance Service Study is the former Pioneer corridor.

We’re planning to discuss these exciting opportunities at the Third Annual Greater Northwest Rail Summit October 8-9 in Spokane.

The event will be co-sponsored by All Aboard Northwest, the Pacific Northwest Economic Region, Big Sky Passenger Rail Authority, All Aboard Washington, The Association of Oregon Rail and Transit Advocates, and the Northwest Region of the Rail Passengers Association.
