More people rode Amtrak's Missouri River Runner in September


The Amtrak Missouri River Runner’s ridership grew 8.5 percent to 14,150 riders in September compared with the same 2010 period, Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) officials said in a prepared statement.

“The number of passengers on the Missouri River Runner continues to grow because the service has become consistently reliable,” said Michelle Teel, MoDOT’s multi-modal director. “With gas prices continuing to hover around $3 a gallon, traveling by train is an economical option for travelers.”

The service’s on-time performance reached 90 percent during the month, MoDOT officials said.
