Across the nation, people are demanding more passenger rail service.  Virginia is a national leader in funding rail infrastructure and Amtrak services.  Six state-supported Amtrak trains connect Virginia to the Northeast Corridor. These are among the most profitable routes in the nation.

Charlottesville is one of Virginia’s strongest passenger rail markets in terms of ridership. It has direct, daily trains north to Washington, New York and Boston and south to Charlotte, Atlanta and New Orleans, with east-west service to Chicago three days a week.  Future expansions of Charlottesville Amtrak service will require major upgrades to the Charlottesville station.

Regular Monthly Meeting: Saturday, June 18, 2016 at 8:30 AM

The presentation will begin at 9:00 am. Our featured guests will be Del. Steve Landes, who was recently named Legislator of the Year by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, as well as Sen. Glen Sturtevant (10th-Chesterfield), the recipient of Freshman of the Year from the VCC.

Come and enjoy breakfast with your fellow Republicans!
