MATR Sponsor (view all)


The City of Boise is still aiming to land the Treasure Valley on a long-distance Amtrak route, but they’re also aiming a little smaller too.

On Tuesday, Mayor Lauren McLean’s Transportation Advisor Bre Brush told Boise City Council the city is working in partnership with the City of Salt Lake City to open up a passenger rail line between Caldwell and Salt Lake City. This would be part of the Federal Rail Administration’s Corridor ID program, which identifies routes previously operated by Amtrak or less than 750 miles for investment.
