Amtrak Set To Cut More Trains October 1; Signed Version of Tampa City Council Resolution

15 Aug 2020 7:26 AM | Jackson McQuigg (Administrator)

We've uploaded here the signed version of the Tampa City Council resolution passed recently which encourages Amtrak to resume daily train service to Tampa Union Station as soon as possible.

This week, Amtrak reiterated its plans to cut the service levels on the majority of its trains across the USA back to 3 times per week (from daily) on October 1.

To restore our daily service and to prevent further train service cuts, Congress must act. YOUR voice is needed.

Contact Senator Rick Scott:

Iconic trains like the California Zephyr, the City of New Orleans, the Empire Builder, and the Crescent are now set for big cuts. Let's do everything we can to prevent them!
