Kansas joins States for Passenger Rail Coalition


The state of Kansas recently joined the States for Passenger Rail Coalition, increasing the coalition’s membership to 34 states.

Established in early 2000, the coalition is an alliance of state departments of transportation that support intercity passenger-rail initiatives and advocate for federal funding.

“It’s extremely important for the coalition to keep expanding its membership. With Kansas on our team, we now have ... a solid representation throughout the Midwest,” said coalition Chairman Frank Busalacchi in a prepared statement.
