Temporary Reduction in Amtrak Service


Temporary Reduction in Amtrak Service to Warrensburg

Warrensburg, MO (March 26, 2020) – The City of Warrensburg received the following communication today regarding Amtrak service to Warrensburg:

In response to unprecedented reductions in passenger rail travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, MoDOT staff have been working closely with Amtrak regarding the ridership declines on the Missouri River Runner trains. Within the past two weeks, daily year-to-year ridership in Missouri has been down as much as 90%, with similar declines in advanced bookings and revenues.

Due to this significant reduction in passenger demand, a temporary service modification is being made to the Missouri River Runner and the national Amtrak network due to reduced travel demand. Starting on Monday, March 30, in Missouri trains #311 and #316 will be suspended. Trains #314 (stopping in Warrensburg at 9:34 am) and #313 (stopping in Warrensburg at 8:09 pm) will continue to operate. We will continually reevaluate our services and are prepared to work with Amtrak on service restoration as conditions change

An announcement by Amtrak highlighting all service modifications can be found here:

Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding during this time. If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me. Stay safe.
