Archive -- Greater Northwest Passenger Rail Summit
August 22-23, 2022 • Billings, MT
The Greater Northwest Passenger Rail Summit will bring passenger railroad organizations, advocates and enthusiasts together with local, state and federal elected officials and policymakers, host railroads and rail infrastructure experts to educate, innovate and coordinate for the restoration, expansion and enhancement of passenger rail service across the Greater Northwest. The passage in late 2021 of the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) has created the best opportunity in decades to expand and improve passenger rail access, and no region of the country is in more need of that expansion and improvement than the Greater Northwest. Now is the time for rail advocates and policymakers from across the region to start coordinating to ensure the “second rail revolution” doesn’t pass us by.
Registration is now open! Be sure to register by July 15 to take advantage of Early Bird registration specials. Special group block rates for in-person summit attendees are available at the Northern and at the DoubleTree Inn by Hilton.
We look forward to welcoming you to Billings in August. All Aboard!
"The support from the Rail Passengers Association, and from all of you individually, has been incredibly important to Amtrak throughout our history and especially so during the last trying year."
