Help improve train travel in Washington

Help improve train travel in Washington

The Amtrak Cascades train service is one of the smartest ways to travel in western Washington. Daily trains travel along the entire I-5 corridor from Vancouver, British Columbia to Eugene, Oregon. The trains stop at 18 stations along the way, including Seattle and Portland.

This route is considered one of the most scenic train corridors in the United States, with beautiful views of the ocean, mountains, rivers, farmlands and cities. Food and beverages are available for purchase in the café cars. Free Wifi, bike racks, and generous luggage policies make for a wonderful trip. Ticket discounts are available for children, seniors, and groups of up to eight people traveling together.

The Washington State Department of Transportation pays for the service in our state and is planning for improvements to Amtrak Cascades over the next 20 years. You can help by telling them about your travel activities and letting them know what’s most important to you.

Take WSDOT’s Amtrak Cascades survey by February 24 to share your opinions. People who take the survey can enter to win two tickets on Amtrak Cascades and two concert tickets to see Ed Sheeran! The survey is available in English, Spanish, Chinese and Vietnamese.
