AMTRAK, WSDOT and BNSF plan additional train service to help after I-5 bridge collapse

Saturday, May 25, 2013

To assist travelers affected by yesterday’s I-5 highway bridge collapse in Skagit County, Amtrak Cascades will add one round trip route between Seattle and Bellingham in the coming weeks.


Amtrak, the Washington State Department of Transportation, BNSF Railway and Sound Transit are working together to add this service, a morning departure from Seattle to Bellingham with an early evening return, to help those who normally drive this route. More details will be released as they become available.

Amtrak Cascades provides four trips each day over the Skagit River Rail Bridge, which is fully functional. Amtrak Cascades Thruway buses add ten more trips through the area. Schedules, reservations and tickets at Amtrak Cascades or call 800-USA-RAIL.
