All Aboard Washington has had a very successful summer!
We Published Our Vision for a Rail and Bus Network Serving More Washingtonians
This is only the beginning of a more robust grid, but it has made quite a splash in print and on social media.
- Advocates Travel Statewide to Share Vision For Improving Passenger Rail Service in Washington State, Aug 8, 2021
- All Aboard Washington Releases New Passenger Rail Vision Map, August 31, 2021
- Passenger rail advocacy group All Aboard Washington (AAWA) has a new vision map that suggests new intercity rail and bus connections across Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. August 31, 2021
We Travelled to Communities Across the State
AAWA shared our vision of a truly national transportation network, and received excellent feedback from the communities we visited. Our vision will:
- Provide seamless, door-to-door connectivity to everyone in the region
- Offer economic, environmental and equity benefits to all communities
We Built Stronger Connections with Local, State, Regional, and National Leaders
"Our community fair is labor day weekend when I typically see our local representatives at our local parade and Fair. I can use that opportunity to give them more information about All Aboard Washington too."

"This is a great story on your recent release of a rail vision. Can you send us the map and any other materials you guys have on this?...[We are considering] including a recommendation on advancing such service, the map image and information will be helpful."

AAWA Helped Facilitate the First Pacific Northwest Rail Forum
"Thank you for speaking at the PNWER 30th Annual Summit in Big Sky during the Pacific Northwest Passenger Rail Forum! Hundreds of participants from across the region joined us in Montana and online and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Events like the Summit are successful because of people like yourself sharing your knowledge and expertise. You played a major role in ensuring our work remains relevant, effective, and timely!"
