Trains For America

More choices for better transportation

Iowa musings

Many years ago (I am starting to sound like a geezer, which is far from the truth), I resided a short spell in Boone, Iowa. There are plenty of good rail lines in Iowa and I have no idea if the state authorities are looking at good routes. Anyway, here is a note for all you Hawkeyes from WHO.

Iowa travelers could eventually have a new way to get around the country. Two studies are underway to expand passenger train service.

One study looks at Amtrak service between Chicago and Iowa City. The feasibility study examines costs and potential use. A similar study requested by the Iowa Department of Transportation looks at service between Iowa City and Des Moines.

Once the studies are complete, state transportation departments will decide whether to move forward with construction.
