Trains For America

More choices for better transportation

Heartland Flyer update

Evan Stair sent out some info today on the Heartland Flyer and a proposed daylight hours schedule (Alternative 3) to operate Fort Worth-Kansas City.

In the recently completed Amtrak Feasibility study for the Kansas City –
Wichita – Oklahoma City – Fort Worth corridor…

1) Alternative- 3 would beat ridership figures for three long distance
trains?
2) Alternative- 3 would beat ridership figures for nine state supplemental
trains?
3) Alternative- 3 cost per mile would be $18.08 per mile?
4) Alternative- 3 would beat ridership figures for the Missouri River
Runners between Kansas City and St. Louis?
5) Currently Heartland Flyer is less efficient as it shows a required
$28.59 per mile?
