Big Sky Passenger Rail gains state transportation as partner; D.C. officials scheduled to visit

big sky passenger rail authority

As the Big Sky Passenger Rail Authority works to get the wheels turning on its efforts to restore a southern route across Montana, it found a new member this week that could carry sway.

Chairman Dave Strohmaier said Tuesday that the Montana Department of Transportation has joined the authority as an ex officio member. It marks the first state agency to get behind the effort to restore passenger service along the old North Coast Hiawatha route.

“It’s a pretty big deal,” Strohmaier said.
