Coachella Valley Train Station(s) could be a reality!

Coachella Valley Train Station(s) could be a reality!
Coachella Valley agencies already looking for funds for a yet-to-be approved passenger rail project, a big question is looming: Which desert cities get to have the train depots? Rail service between the Coachella Valley and Los Angeles say it could become reality in as little as two years!! Transportation officials are encouraging residents to provide feedback  at Thursday Nights Meeting that focuses on the long-discussed Coachella Valley and San Gorgonio Pass rail project. The Valley could construct as many as three stations, according to Allyn Waggle, deputy executive director for the Coachella Valley Association of Governments. Personally - if we got 1 station that was accessible 24/7....well that would make for a happy camper 🙂 3 stations....Now your just lifting the excitement of us who live here 365. The convenience of being able to hop on a train and go into LA or Riverside for a day trip, dinner, festival or weekend would be fantastic! Downtown Indio — where Amtrak stopped before the station moved west — and the existing station in north Palm Springs are considered two likely contenders with daily rail service stops. A mid-valley station is also possible on 17 aces of vacant CVAG-owned land next to the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage. Thursday’s meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Coachella Valley Association of Governments’ Palm Desert office, 73-710 Fred Waring Dr. If you go What: Coachella Valley and San Gorgonio Pass rail service meeting When: 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday Where: Coachella Valley Association of Governments’ Palm Desert office, 73-710 Fred Waring Dr. Information: (951) 787-7141   READ COACHELLA VALLEY'S TOP STORIES READ MORE STORIES THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND PHOTO GALLERIES OF ALL OUR SHOOTS
