Important message from the RailPAC Board

Dear Passenger Rail Supporter:

RailPAC has endeavored over the past thirty eight years to advocate investment in and the greater use of passenger in California, Nevada and the west.  The campaign continues with publications, online news briefings, visits to Sacramento and DC, and with local officials.  We believe that we have made a difference, and we continue to do so.

Currently our active members are engaged in a local campaign for double track of the Coast line between Van Nuys and Chatsworth.  In addition we are working in the Bay Area to ensure that the downtown extension is built to the Trans Bay Terminal.  We are constantly engaged regarding the routing and funding for High Speed Rail.  And our members in Las Vegas work with legislators to maintain interest in a High Speed link to Southern California.

This year we have set ourselves the ambitious goal of being the promoter and coordinator of a new event; California Train Day.  This will take place on May 13, 2017, and we hope this will become an annual event.

Whether you are currently a member, a former member or have never joined, RailPAC needs your support.  While we are volunteers and keep expenses to a minimum our publications and educational efforts require money.  Attendance at state hearings, especially when invited at short notice, can be costly, yet we need to be there to state our case.

Please either renew your membership, join us, or donate a little extra today to ensure that passenger rail is adequately funded and continues to expand to meet the mobility needs of a growing population.  Memberships start at $35 ($25 for seniors over 65), and general donations of any amount are appreciated.  Early renewals will extend memberships for an additional 12 months.  Payments may be made by clicking here or mailed to P.O. Box 22344, San Francisco, CA  94122.  We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so ask your employer if they have a matching program.  We participate in the Amazon Smile program, so if you buy from them at please select Citizens for Rail California from the dropdown menu marked “Supporting”, and they will donate to us a small percentage of your purchase.

Thank you for your continued interest in RailPAC.
