WashARP's archive web site is updated occasionally, adding new materials and updating the OT performance and corridor ridership data. The Last UPDATE: Tuesday, September 7, 2004.

WashARP thanks TRAINWEB for hosting our site.

Background:

The Washington Association of Rail Passengers is a consumer oriented, rail advocacy group organization compromised of citizens, businesses and other public interest groups from Washington State, as well as from neighboring states and provinces. Working together for improved rail transportation services in the Pacific Northwest, we work in concert with similar rail passenger groups in Oregon, California, and British Columbia. We also maintain a cooperative relationship with the National Association of Rail Passengers, based in Washington DC.

Purpose:

The Association believes that a modern rail passenger rail network is an essential element of a truly balanced transportation system in which each mode of transport (highway, air, ferry and rail) is used to its best advantage. Governments can no longer ignore the alternatives that railroads and passenger trains offer. Yet, they continue to give preferential treatment to inefficient and congested highway and airway systems. We encourage government agencies that deal with transportation to consider the economic, social and environmental benefits that railroads have to offer.

The Washington Association of Rail Passengers is a non-profit 501(c)3 citizen activist organization funded sorely by membership dues and donations. Membership is encouraged for any individual or group that has a concern in developing a balanced, cost-effective and environmentally sound transportation network in Washington State. Contributions are tax deductible under current IRS rules. Members receive a membership card, a bi-monthly newsletter covering efforts of the Association and notification of upcoming Association meetings.
