Join us August 19th at 3pm Eastern, when Rail Passengers senior staff will host the fourth event in our advocacy webinar series -- which will focus on the campaign for daily service on the Sunset Limited. Registration will close on Monday, August, 17th. Space is limited to 475 participants so reserve your spot now.
In this briefing, we will:
- Discuss the ongoing efforts to return daily service to the Sunset Limited from New Orleans to Los Angeles featuring presentations by Steve Roberts, President of the Rail Passengers Association of California & Nevada and George Chilson, Chairman Emeritus of Rail Passengers Association - followed by Q&A with them and other team members.
- Explain the IMPLAN economic modeling tool and how it can be used in the advocacy world.
Join us for a fast paced webinar about this initiative. Learn about the market and the economics that make running the Sunset Limited daily along on the I-10 Corridor an important but long neglected public priority. Understand the challenges we face and the strategies we’ve developed to overcome them. Explore how the Daily Sunset campaign could be a template for increasing frequencies on other long distance routes and for adding new routes to the national Interstate system to make train travel a more widely available and attractive travel choice for more Americans.
Submit your questions at [email protected] with the subject line "DAILY SUNSET QUESTIONS" . Deadline for submission is August 12th.
