The Midwest High Speed Rail Association is one of the nation’s leading advocacy organizations in the effort to bring high-speed rail to the United States. With thousands of members throughout the Midwest, we educate people, businesses and lawmakers about the need for fast, frequent and reliable trains that link Midwestern economies and communities. Since 1993, we’ve worked with local governments, federal officials, the railroad industry and fellow advocacy groups to cultivate the political will and public support needed to build the Midwest's high-speed network.
Over the last 25 years, the Midwest High Speed Rail Association has spearheaded nearly $1 billion in legislative victories advancing passenger rail, motivated tens of thousands of advocates to take action, established relationships with industry and government experts, and conducted extensive research into passenger rail policy.

The Midwest High Speed Rail Association is a people-powered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We cannot do this work without the support of thousands of individuals, foundations and corporate donors who believe that the economic well-being of this country depends on the development of high-speed rail in the Midwest.
We thank these corporate partners for their generous sponsorship at $1,000 and above. Contact us to learn about the benefits of corporate sponsorship.
