AORTA—The Association of Oregon Rail and Transit Advocates—is a 501(c)(3) non-profit citizen advocacy group working to educate the public about the need for safe, fiscally responsible, environmentally sound transportation. It is also known as the Oregon Association of Railway Passengers (OreARP). AORTA works cooperatively with the National Association of Railroad Passengers (NARP) while maintaining its autonomy.
AORTA is not just about rail passenger service. Its members recognize the need for balanced transportation services using all the modes appropriate for the area, the environment, the population served, and the funding available for such services. These include rapid transit, light rail, and bus, while laying the foundation for high speed rail in the Northwest.
