Amtrak Modifying Service Due to COVID-19

In response to unprecedented reductions in passenger rail travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, MoDOT staff have been working closely with Amtrak regarding the ridership declines on the Missouri River Runner trains. Due to this significant reduction in passenger demand, a temporary service modification is being made to the Missouri River Runner and the national Amtrak network.  Starting on Monday, March 30, in Missouri trains #311 and #316 will be suspended.  Trains #314 (originating in Kansas City at 8:15 am) and #313 (originating in St. Louis at 4:00 pm) will continue to operate.  MoDOT will continually reevaluate services and are prepared to work with Amtrak on service restoration as conditions change.
