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
"When [NARP] comes to Washington, you help embolden us in our efforts to continue the progress for passenger rail. And not just on the Northeast Corridor. All over America! High-speed rail, passenger rail is coming to America, thanks to a lot of your efforts! We’re partners in this. ... You are the ones that are going to make this happen. Do not be dissuaded by the naysayers. There are thousands of people all over America who are for passenger rail and you represent the best of what America is about!"
