Oregon Passenger Rail Open House

Date/Time: Thu, Jan 10, 2013 5:00pm - 7:00pm

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is studying ways to improve intercity passenger rail service between Eugene and Portland. The study will help decide on a general passenger rail route and evaluate options for train frequency, trip time, and improving on-time performance.

In the summer and fall of 2012, ODOT asked the public to weigh in on what passenger rail should look like in the Eugene to Portland area. ODOT received over 800 comments. Based on this input, ODOT drafted project goals and objectives and identified a range of route options between Eugene and Portland. To learn more, visit
