    Amtrak Service & Ridership

    Amtrak operates the state-supported Missouri River Runner service, two daily round-trip trains between

    St. Louis and Kansas City. Daily St. Louis-Chicago service is proved by the Texas Eagle and Lincoln

    Service, which is supported by the State of Illinois.

    Amtrak also operates two National Network trains through Missouri:

     The Southwest Chief (daily Chicago-Kansas City-Los Angeles)

     The Texas Eagle (daily Chicago-St. Louis-Dallas-San Antonio with tri-weekly connecting service

    to/from Los Angeles via the Sunset Limited)

    During FY16 Amtrak served the following Missouri locations:

    Total Missouri Station Usage: 698,757

    (up 0.0% from FY15)

    *Service began on 11/20/16, during Fiscal 2017.


    Amtrak spent $34,304,638 on goods and services in Missouri in FY16, including at:

    City Amount

    Grain Valley $ 26,675,653

    St. Joseph $ 1,753,228

    St. Louis $ 3,602,858


    At the end of FY16, Amtrak employed 80 Missouri residents. Total wages of Amtrak employees living in

    Missouri were $6,444,798 during FY16.

    PRIIA Section 209 and State-Supported Services

    The Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 (P.L. 110-432) required, by October 2013,

    an equitable arrangement of cost sharing between Amtrak and state or public agency partners that provide

    funding for short-distance, intercity train services. Agreements were reached with all parties, including

    Missouri, by the deadline, and the services continued to run, confirming the importance of this service to

    the state and its residents. Amtrak operates two daily trains between St. Louis and Kansas City, the

    Missouri River Runners, under contract, for the State of Missouri.

    Kansas City-St. Louis improvements

    In 2012, Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) was awarded a $22.6-million High-Speed

    Intercity Passenger Rail Program grant to construct a second bridge over the Osage River in Central

    Missouri, eliminating one of the worst rail bottlenecks in the Midwest. The remainder of the $28 million

    cost was covered by the Union Pacific Railroad, the route’s owner. The second track allows for better

    performance of Missouri River Runner trains. The project was completed in late 2013.

    Station Improvements

    Arcadia: Amtrak and the Arcadia Valley communities of Pilot Knob, Ironton, and Arcadia, and the Our

    Town Tomorrow community revitalization organization on celebrated the opening of their new, ADA-

    compliant platform, on November 17, 2016. Funding came from the Iron County Economic Partnership,

    the William Edgar Foundation, and a Transportation Enhancement Grant from the Missouri Department of

    Transportation. The last passenger rail service to the community was provided by the Missouri Pacific

    Railroad in 1968. The community preserved their 1941 depot as a visitor center. It is adjacent to the new

    platform and will resume its original purpose as a waiting room for Texas Eagle passengers.
