We look forward to seeing many of you on Saturday, July 25, 2015 for a brief MARP meeting at 9 a.m. followed by the opportunity to tour the Amtrak Exhibit Train at the new Vernon J. Ehlers Amtrak Station in Grand Rapids from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free and open to the public, the exhibit is part of a summer long celebration of Amtrak Train Days at locations around the nation. Take a self-guided tour through Amtrak’s past, present and future. Younger train fans will enjoy the Chuggington Kids Depot.
The Michigan Association of Railroad Passengers, Inc. (MARP) was established in 1973 as a consumer advocacy group to:
• improve intercity rail and bus passenger service,
• improve local transit service,
• and encourage the preservation of historic railroad stations.
Learn more about our organization on the About us, MARP Vision, Executive Committee and Bylaws pages. We also post minutes of our regular meetings.
You don’t have to be a member to join us at one of our regular meetings across the state of Michigan. Check the calendar page for the next meeting date and location.
The easiest way to show your support for balanced transportation is to become a member of MARP. Our new membership page has options to join or renew by credit card, PayPal or U.S. Postal Service. There is now a donation page if you wish to show your financial support beyond membership.
