RIDE INTO YOUR FUTURE

 Learn more about the TCMC Second Train and the Great River Rail Commission

Welcome to Great River Rail

The Great River Rail Commission aims to increase passenger rail options along the Mississippi River Route between the Twin Cities and Chicago. The TCMC Second Train project will do just that. A second daily round-trip train now, to complement the existing Amtrak Empire Builder service, is a great first step toward more frequent and faster passenger rail service in the future.

Our Vision

The Great River Rail Commission is made up of elected officials all along the River Route from St. Paul to La Crosse, WI. The commission advocates for more frequent trains between the Twin Cities and Chicago to increase opportunities for business, communities, college students, tourism, and more.
