Improving passenger rail in Oregon The Oregon Passenger Rail project is studying options for improved passenger rail service between the Columbia River in the Portland urban area and the Eugene-Springfield urban area – an approximately 125 mile segment. The Oregon Department of Transportation is in the beginning stages of a study process that will help determine a general passenger rail alignment and communities where stations will be located. The project will also determine the number of daily trips between Eugene and Portland, travel time objectives, and the technologies to be used.
