New schedule includes Thruway bus connections. Connections in general can still be improved; All Aboard Washington is working with WSDOT on that.

Amtrak can be better! Tell your local, state and national elected officials to support a more robust rail system. Join NARP and your local rail advocacy organization.

But the new schedules do not include new mileage!  Both the old and the new timetables show 39 miles from Seattle to Tacoma or Tacoma Dome and 75 miles to Olympia-Lacey.  I have noted that the Northeast Corridor timetables do not show mileage at all--I hope the mileage is fixed and not eliminated. 


Northeast corridor Heritage, Metroliner, Amfleet and Acela, CN Super Continental, Broadway Limited, Lone Star, Sunset Limited, Coast Starlight, San Joaquin, Southwest Limited, National Limited, Champion, California Zephyr, Capitol Limited, Wolverine, Crescent, Empire Builder, Cascades, Lake Shore Limited, Silver Meteor, Cardinal.

I believe the NEC timetables don't show mileage in order to save space. You can, however, find the mileage on the System Timetable.
