Programs and Services
All Aboard Erie (AAE) is an organization that advocates for more and better public transit choices for the people of Erie County. This includes passenger trains, high-speed trains, and light rail, and increased multi-modal inter-city connectivity. AAE strives to develop grassroots partnerships with community stakeholders, business leaders, elected and appointed officials locally and throughout the tri-state to increase the frequency of Amtrak’s Lakeshore Limited trains to Erie County.
To achieve this objective, AAE partners with the Lakeshore Rail Alliance (LRA), a six-member advocacy coalition representing the states of NY, OH, IN, IL and MI. LRA’s mission is to advocate for Amtrak to operate four to six daily roundtrips linking Chicago and New York, via Erie County and the many cities along the Lakeshore corridor.
All Aboard Erie’s long-term goal is to build faster and expanded railway networks connecting Erie to the metropolitan regions of Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo.
