Get Involved Rail in MN


MN High-Speed Rail Commission

Solid Commitment:

The Minnesota High-Speed Rail Commission is one of the leading voices on passenger rail in Minnesota. Comprised of officials from 17 local and regional governments from Saint Paul to La Crosse, the commission advocates for the development of the Twin Cities-Milwaukee-Chicago (TCMC) Second Train project, a daily round trip passenger train between the Twin Cities and Chicago. The Commissionís long range vision is that the Second Train demonstrates demand for additional passenger rail service that leads to further investment in faster, more frequent passenger train service.
