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.”
