About Us

Who is on board already?

Rochester-area leaders have been interested in the issue of passenger rail service for many years. In September 2004, Rochester-area leaders formalized this support by establishing an alliance to support high-speed passenger rail service through Rochester. The founding members of the Southeast Minnesota Rail Alliance are the City of Rochester, Olmsted County, Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce and Mayo Clinic.

Since then, there have been hundreds of individuals and several additional organizations that have added their support. The Alliance’s efforts are also supported by area legislators and federal office-holders.
