Amtrak To Add Second St. Louis-To-KC Train Next Week
Amtrak’s Missouri River Runner is set to resume running two trains a day, starting next Monday, July 18th.
The extra train comes courtesy of an expanded state budget — lawmakers approved and Governor Mike Parson signed the spending plan last month that increased funding for the Missouri River Runner by nearly two-and-a-half million dollars.
The Amtrak route runs daily between St. Louis and Kansas City, with stops in Kirkwood, Washington, Hermann, Jefferson City, Sedalia, Warrensburg, Lee’s Summit, and Independence.
