Wouldn’t it be great to have Amtrak train service in Springfield and in Branson? Think of the gas savings!

The Missouri Department of Transportation has actually submitted four applications to the Federal Railroad Administration’s Corridor ID program. The state is requesting federal funding to study future Amtrak passenger rail lines.

MoDot would also like to improve existing Amtrak routes from Kansas City to St. Louis  and is interested in creating new Amtrak routes from Kansas City to Springfield/Branson!

Currently Amtrak is not serving the states third largest city which is Springfield or southwest Missouri areas

MoDOT  hopes to hear from the FRA soon!
