"The CBSA recognizes the importance of increasing its operational capacity during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Agency, therefore, has advised Amtrak officials that it will provide service for a second train, without cost, for a suitable period of time immmediately before, during and for a short time after the 2010 Games. I would like to assure you that the CBSA is committed to working with all ceoncerned parties to find a permanent service delivery solution to address the needs of this additional route."You can read the full letter by clicking this JPG image
This is agreat start, but I personally would love to see a station stop somewhere in the south Fraser along with more trains. Right now I drive my car from the border about 15 minutes to a secure lot in Fairhaven, WA, instead of driving to Vancouver. In Vancouver I would be paying more money for my train ticket, and parking at the Via Rail station near Main Street. I will do this drill again next week when I take the Amtrak Cascades to Portland, OR.
Thanks for sharing this information Tom!
