OUR Voice, OUR Trains
Following up from our 2020 Train Trek series of virtual events, this year All Aboard Washington will travel across the state (in-person and electronically) to hear your biggest transportation needs and priorities. Invite your neighbors and local leaders, and join us for informal discussions of how new and improved train service could make a difference in your community.
The 2021 Train Trek will visit regions of the state with existing rail lines. The Train Trek will be held in two stages: East-West in August, and North-South later in the fall (exact dates to be determined).
East-West Train Trek — August 12-22
Save the dates! AAWA will visit cities and towns along East-West rail lines.
We plan to kick off the Train Trek by visiting the following communities:
- Everett-Snohomish County
- Yakima-Union Gap
- Walla Walla-College Place
We will then meet up with our friends in Idaho and Montana to discuss how we can work together to create improved services for the Greater Northwest. Stops will include:
- Big Sky, MT: We have been invited to present our vision to the many US and Canadian regional leaders who will be attending the 2021 Annual Summit of the Pacific Northwest Economic Region.
- Missoula, MT
- Sandpoint, ID
Our final leg will feature numerous communities along East-West including:
- Spokane-Spokane Valley-Cheney-Davenport-Liberty Lake-Veradale
- Moses Lake-Ephrata
- Cle Elum: Join us for the AAWA Annual Picnic
