Passenger rail

Find rail plans, reports, updates, and information on how we manage trains in Washington. Also, learn about train safety and the rules to remember when traveling by train.

Trains travel to 18 cities on the 1-5 corridor between Vancouver, BC (Canada), Seattle, Portland and Eugene. Amtrak Cascades passenger trains are paid for primarily by ticket revenue, and by sponsorship from WSDOT and ODOT.

Read the latest rail plan, view Amtrack Cascades performance reports, and learn about our projects and studies.

It is very important to stay away from railroad tracks. If you must cross tracks, only do so at designated crossings while following all the safety signage and rules.
