MARP meetings are held in various places around the state in order to give everyone a chance to participate.

We post meetings announcements on the web with agenda information and travel information. We have archived meeting minutes so you can have a look at past topics covered.

MARP members also frequently set up a booth at festivals, train shows and other events to spread the word about passenger rail in Michigan. Click here for the schedule. Contact Robert Tischbein at rptischbein@juno.com , to volunteer for the next show. Thanks.
