There currently are proposals from two separate carriers to provide increased passenger service in the corridor between Seattle, WA, and Vancouver, BC. Amtrak proposes to add a second daily train along that route, and Kenmore Air proposes to initiate float plane service from Lake Union (Seattle) to Vancouver Harbour. This note provides an estimate of the economic benefit to Vancouver of the associated increase in visitation. The note considers only the benefits derived from tourism.
