All About Membership

Who can join

The Railtowns United membership is for municipalities and geographical areas in the United States that are connected and intersected by railroad. Members include villages, towns, and cities. Membership is also available to districts, areas, regions, wards, buroughs, and counties.

We are a young organization and able to customize packages to fit various needs.

If you don't find what your community needs, we're happy to talk with you about it!

Email membership@railtowns.org or book 15 minutes with us.

Member benefits

  • Emergency and policy-based advocacy for your town's enhanced safety and boosted commerce, including running public influence campaigns and engaging in strategic lobbying to create lasting impact.

  • Collaborative initiatives with your fellow members- sharing resources and effective strategies, and establishing powerful networks for shared success.

Our services, designed to enhance your community's safety, growth, and legislative influence, continue to take shape with your input at the forefront.

We operate a rolling membership model. You can join when convenient for you and your membership will be in place for 12 months from that date.

At checkout, you will be asked to provide the name and state of your municipality or area, the email address for the contact person of the member municipality, billing address, and credit card or ACH information.
