Amtrak announces no train service to Canada until late 2022:
Amtrak informed the states of Washington and Oregon that the popular Amtrak Cascades train service north of Seattle will not resume until late 2022 due to Amtrak staffing shortages. WSDOT and ODOT expressed extreme dissatisfaction with this plan and urged Amtrak to at least begin offering service a few days a week on an interim basis until full service can resume in December 2022. Amtrak noted it is committed to an earlier start date if employee resources allow. Several staff positions must be filled including conductors, on-board service staff, and mechanics. Progress is being made in recruiting necessary staff; however, once hired, they must complete extensive training programs before starting their jobs. Train service north of Seattle has been suspended since May 2020 when the Canadian border closed to non-essential travel.
