Join us for #trAinGU21

First, please indicate if you are planning to travel by train when you register for the meeting, so that we can credit the emissions savings. Then be sure to use promo code V653 when booking your trip with Amtrak.

Next, if you are interested in connecting with others traveling to #AGU21 by rail, join our TrAinGU Connect group.

Finally, use the #trAinGU21 to share your journey on social media.

Stay tuned for #trAinGU22 next year where we are thinking of how to have special programming on several trains and launch a coordinated effort to connect attendees traveling by rail.
