These fares thank the community for its patience while local, state and Amtrak officials worked to provide a modular building to serve as a temporary station. It is located along the boarding platform a half-block west of the regular Amtrak station, which closed for repairs in October at the direction of the building’s owner, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
“Jefferson City leaders have been strong advocates for their community who worked to create a safe, secure and accessible facility,” said Bryan Ross, MoDOT Rail Operations Manager. Amtrak operates the Missouri River Runner (Trains 311, 313, 314 & 316) between St. Louis and Kansas City under a contract with MoDOT as part of the Amtrak MidwestSM network.
“Both Amtrak and MoDOT also are grateful for the work of the station hosts, unpaid volunteers who meet every train, every day, to help our customers and endured weeks without adequate shelter or running water,” said Derrick James, Senior Manager, Amtrak Government Affairs. “We’re very glad those days are behind us and we look forward to working with local and state officials on a permanent solution.”
