Dear Secretary Buttigieg,
Please support Amtrak’s application under the FY22-23 Federal-State Partnership for Intercity Passenger Rail Grant Program (FSP) to fund upgrades at Chicago Union Station and to create better routes to and from central Chicago.
Known together as the Chicago Hub Improvement Program, these projects have local, regional, and national significance. Amtrak’s proposal covers essential next steps and sets the stage for:
These improvements will benefit residents and visitors in the Midwest, as well as communities across the country. Chicago Union Station offers direct service to 375 cities and towns in more than 36 states. In 2019, more than 15 million passengers boarded Amtrak or Metra trains at the station, making it busier than Midway Airport.
All of this shows the nationwide importance of Amtrak’s Chicago Chicago Hub Improvement proposal. We need to make sure that Chicago infrastructure better serves our country’s needs today, as well as providing foundations for further growth in ridership, and faster, more frequent service. Please grant the requests for Chicago Hub Improvement funding in Amtrak’s FSP applications.
Thank you in advance for supporting this initiative.
