GoRail educates community leaders across the country about the public benefits of freight rail investments, mobilizing them in support of an even stronger rail network. We believe every ton of freight moved by rail strengthens the economy, creates jobs, mitigates pollution and saves taxpayers money.
GoRail’s rail advocates are community leaders from every region of the country who recognize that rail policy decisions made in Washington, D.C. have real impacts back home. Meet them and learn more about the ways freight rail has benefited their communities.

“Freight railroads are critically important to Willamette Valley’s farmers, growers and makers, many of which depend on reliable and efficient rail connections to take their products to markets across the nation and world.”
