Venue Information

University of Washington Tacoma 1710 Market Street Tacoma Washington 98402

All Aboard Washington regrets that these two upcoming events have been postponed for the protection of our guests and speakers:

    Central Washington Passenger Rail Summit, Yakima, March 14
    Rail Passengers NW Meeting, Tacoma, April 18

We have been monitoring the coronavirus / COVID-19 situation closely. Governor Inslee has instituted a temporary ban on events such as these, and many employers are prohibiting their employees from traveling. As a result, many of the scheduled speakers will be unable to attend on the original dates.

We will update you with information about when the meetings will be rescheduled. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
