Temporary Seattle-Bellingham Amtrak Cascades service ends as I-5 reopens

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

With the temporary bridge in place over the Skagit River and Interstate 5 back in business (if slowly), the additional Washington State Department of Transportation-sponsored Amtrak Cascades  service between Seattle and Bellingham will be discontinued. Space is available on regularly scheduled Amtrak Cascades trains and Thruway Motorcoach buses. 

Amtrak, Sound Transit and BNSF stepped up in the hours after the bridge collapse to help WSDOT quickly offer another mobility option for the traveling public,” said Transportation Secretary Lynn Peterson. “I am grateful for these efforts, and that this partnership came together at a critical moment to find solutions for Washingtonians.” 

Space is available on trains and buses and reservations are required. Tickets are available online or by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL. In addition to rail service, Amtrak Cascades offers 10 Thruway bus trips through the area daily.
