The Inspection Trip offers participants unparalleled perspective on the opportunity of intercity passenger rail along the Gulf Coast.

The goal of the trip will be to examine the existing infrastructure and better understand the economic, cultural and mobility opportunities that intercity passenger rail provides. The trip will include elected officials, industry representatives, community leaders and federal stakeholders. Refreshments and box lunches will be provided onboard the train during the trip. Credentials will be available train-side to all registered riders. Please bring a valid photo I.D. for boarding. Only those with Amtrak-issued credentials will be permitted to board. Due to space limitations, we regret the invitation is non-transferable. 

Please note this trip is a one-way trip by rail and the return trip from the stop where you disembark is
your responsibility. We have arranged return bus transportation from Gulfport to
New Orleans on February 18th. Send questions to RSVP@cpex.org or call 225-389-7193.
