In Needles 9176 boarding occurred by residents of Needles and the greater tri-state region with their primary destination being Los Angeles.

The federal government recently spent in excess of $11.0M to rehabilitate the El Garces adding the Amtrak station.

Discontinuing this service will further isolate Needles and other rural communities across the United States from major metropolitan centers and similar communities metropolitan centers and similar communities. The lack of service will harm tourism and general access by those without private transportation options.

Transferring the train trips to automobile trips will further exacerbate congestion and air pollution problems in the non-attainment LA basin.
