Dan Aykroyd Helps NARP Share The Importance of Passenger Rail
From our friends at the National Association of Rail Passengers (NARP):
Over the past several months, the National Association of Rail Passengers (NARP) has been creating a video to help share the continued, as well as growing, importance of passenger rail and connecting Americans to rail service. The increasing demand for rail service in this country is trending upward, and it is evident through rail projects in California, Florida, Texas and elsewhere. Once these projects are completed, they will change and influence how Americans travel, and we wanted to capture the benefits of this change in a new and educational video.
For the development of the video, we collaborated with and utilized as a spokesperson, actor, comedian and rail enthusiast, Dan Aykroyd. He helps us share the travel, economic, and environmental benefits of passenger rail services, such as the national Amtrak network, light rail service in Charlotte, NC, or upgraded rail lines in Salt Lake City, UT.
With the completion of the video, NARP members are welcomed to not only watch and enjoy it, but to help NARP share it with others so they too know the positive outcomes passenger rail generates. Whether it’s friends and family, or local government and transportation officials, you can help spread the word.
The video is on the NARP website at the following link https://youtu.be/LDiHvidz3H8, hosted through YouTube. So please take a few minutes to watch, enjoy and share.
