Passenger Rail - In the news!

June 8, 2023

The historic Transportation Bill recently passed by the Minnesota Legislature is making news not only in Minnesota, but in Fargo North Dakota as well. Recently, Brian Nelson of All Aboard Minnesota was interviewed by StreetsMN to discuss the impact of the Transportation Bill on passenger rail, and the Fargo Forum discussed with Brian what the St. Paul to Fargo passenger rail corridor study might look like.

As a side note, All Aboard Minnesota conducted an "Outreach" session in Fargo/Moorhead in October 2019 for business, civic, educational leaders and the general public to discuss what daytime passenger rail service would look like in the St. Paul to Fargo corridor on the current Empire Builder route. Interest there was very high, and it was our most highly attended Outreach session. Interest remains high there and in the communities along the corridor, such as Wadena, Staples, Detroit Lakes, Little Falls, St. Cloud, and Anoka.
