You are invited to attend the Eighth TRB Rail Passenger Caucus in the Pacific Northwest. The Caucus is a joint business meeting of the passenger rail-oriented committees in the TRB Public Transportation Section. The Caucus is also an opportunity to learn more about local rail transit systems, programs, and policies through its emphasis on agency presentations and technical tours.

The Pacific Northwest offers a rich multimodal diversity. The Caucus will look at intercity rail, commuter rail, light rail, automated guideway systems, monorails, aerial tramways, ferries and intermodal transfer facilities. Regional transit and
planning agencies are invited to provide technical presentations enroute.

The general itinerary for the Eighth TRB Rail Passenger Caucus is:

  • Wednesday Evening, October 24: Arrive in British Columbia.
  • Thursday, October 25: Site visits and presentations in Greater Vancouver.
  • Friday, October 26: Site visits and presentations in the Puget Sound region.
  • Saturday, October 27: Site visits and presentations in Portland.

Any member or friend of a TRB committee is welcome to participate. Attendance is capped at 45 participants, however, to maintain the interactive, "kick the tires and look under the hood" atmosphere typical of past caucuses. Reflecting the informal nature of the Caucus, there is no registration fee and participants must make hotel
and Amtrak reservations on an individual basis.

The preliminary itinerary for the Eighth TRB Rail Passenger Caucus is provided on the opposite side (incredibly subject to change). To register for the Caucus and for more information, please send an e-mail message to T. R. Hickey at Gannett
Fleming, Inc. THICKEY@GFNET.COM or Dr. Peter Shaw at TRB PSHAW@NAS.EDU.

Call Mr. Hickey directly at 610-306-3066 with more timely questions or concerns.
