Get Updated - Join Us on National Train Day!
St. Paul Union Depot - Red Cap Room - 9-10am
Reminder - please join us on June 1, 9am Red Cap Room for an update on the future of passenger rail in Minnesota. The good news is that funding was passed in the Transportation Bill for the MnDot State Rail Office, and $650,000 was also included to study the extension of Northstar Commuter Rail to St. Cloud. The bad news is that no other monies were appropriated to fund Twin Cities to Duluth service ( NLX ) or the second train frequency between the Twin Cities and Chicago as a bonding bill was not passed.
Representative Alice Hausman - member of the House Transportation Finance Committee - will be on hand at our meeting to give her perspective on what happened this session and what we can do for the next session.
Previous Event Post; All Aboard Minnesota is hosting a Publlic Forum Update meeting on National Train Day at St. Paul Union Depot. The 2019 Minnesota Legislative session has been interesting to say the least to fund passenger rail, but we will distill for you what happened and how it will impact passenger rail in Minnesota. Representatives from the MnDot State Rail Office will also provide an update on what their plans are going forward. We will outline what All Aboard Minnesota's advocacy plans are for the future and how you can be involved. The public is welcome to attend! We look forward to seeing you there.
All Aboard Minnesota will have a table exhibit at National Train Day on June 1, and 2 from 10am - 4pm. Stop by to talk with us!
