Missoula County sets “virtual” rail summit for September 17
After being delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Missoula County is pressing ahead with plans to hold a summit to discuss plans to bring passenger rail service back to southern Montana.
Missoula County commissioners have been working with their counterparts in other counties to float the idea of bringing passenger rail service across the “southern route”.
It’s been more than 40-years since Amtrak provided regular service between Billings and Missoula.
Missoula County Commissioner Dave Strohmaier says “Southern Montana Route” rail service idea viable even in face of Amtrak cuts
Our world, and the economy, may have changed dramatically in the past three months — and could still change more in the months to come. But Strohmaier believes restoration of passenger rail service through Missoula is the key to the future.
