Petition Closed

Since many of us are concerned about rising gas prices and global climate change, train travel is an increasingly desirable way to go. Unfortunately, Knoxville citizens must drive four hours to Atlanta in order to catch the Amtrak, which discourages most Knoxvillians from taking trains to travel around the nation. However, Knoxville is an important hub of the Southeast, and we desperately need access to mass transit. Let's bring the Amtrak to Knoxville, y'all! I'd rather be on the train!
