All Aboard Washington regrets that the Central Washington Passenger Rail Summit, originally scheduled to be held this Saturday, March 14, has been postponed for the protection of our guests and speakers.
We have been monitoring the coronavirus / COVID-19 situation closely. Governor Inslee is recommending that events such as this be postponed, and several major companies are prohibiting their employees from traveling. As a result, many of the scheduled speakers will be unable to attend on the original date.
We will update you with information about when the meeting will be rescheduled. You are also welcome to attend our regional Rail Passengers Association meeting on Saturday, April 18 in Tacoma.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
All Aboard Washington
"The National Association of Railroad Passengers has done yeoman work over the years and in fact if it weren’t for NARP, I'd be surprised if Amtrak were still in possession of as a large a network as they have. So they've done good work, they're very good on the factual case."
