Thank you for learning more about WPPR. Our mission is simple: more and better passenger rail service for Western Pennsylvanians. Currently there is only one daily passenger train, the Pennsylvanian, running between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, while more than a dozen exist between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. We are advocating for three (3) daily trains to run between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg (continuing east to Philadelphia and New York) in an effort to connect the region, thus providing expanded travel alternatives and enhancing economic development.
This organization is working hard to achieve this goal, and in 2017, actions by the Pennsylvania legislature showed its greater interest in additional service .
We hope you write to your legislatures and local media outlets to urge support for more and better passenger rail service for Western Pennsylvania. Follow this link to find legislatures in your district. Thank you.
