About Us

Amtrak Cascades is a modern yet nostalgic train experience with friendly conductors, comfortable accommodations, local food options and stunning Northwest scenery to view end-to-end, all from the comfort of your seat. It’s more than just a way to get where you’re going—it’s a destination in itself!

Riders take the Cascades to sample local cuisine, attend sports and cultural events, visit the many landmarks and destinations along the way and find one-of-a-kind adventures available only in the Pacific Northwest. Over the years, Amtrak Cascades has attracted a passionate group of regular riders. Now we have a growing following of leisure riders who also seek the unique culture, adventure and entertainment that Oregon and Washington are known for.

Oregon’s rail community invites you to come ride with us!

About this website

This website was developed by ODOT to provide Oregon visitors and residents with inspiration and opportunities for exploring the state using the Amtrak Cascades service. As more locals and visitors use the train, we can add frequency and destinations to serve more people. For Oregon, that means fewer cars on the road, less congestion and fewer greenhouse gas emissions. It also means we can provide a clean and convenient transportation option for more Oregonians to connect to jobs, schools, family, friends and essential services.
