Amtrak Cascades Station Stop Policy
The Oregon Department
of Transportation worked with the Washington State Department of Transportation
to develop a corridor-wide policy on station stops for the Amtrak Cascades
intercity passenger rail service. The Station Stop Policy was formally adopted
by the agencies on June 1, 2016. The policy and associated guidance establishes
a process and approach for outlining the data and facts needed to determine the
value and benefit of proposed station stop changes to the Amtrak Cascades
corridor. Please see the Station Stop Policy webpage for more information.
The Oregon Department of Transportation is pleased to partner with several organizations, agencies and individuals to restore the historic Baggage Depot at the Salem Railroad Station.
Oregon Passenger Rail EIS project
The Oregon Department of Transportation is conducting the Oregon Passenger Rail Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Project as the next step in improving passenger rail service in the Oregon segment of the federally designated Pacific Northwest Rail Corridor between Eugene and Portland.
