Rugby, ND, to Lose Amtrak Station Agent

The Amtrak station agent in Rugby, North Dakota, will be removed on June 1.

Amtrak Empire BuilderAmtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said the agent will transfer to Minot, North Dakota, and the Rugby station will be overseen by a caretaker.

Magliari attributed the change in Rugby to a higher volume of train passengers obtaining tickets online.

Rugby is served by the Chicago-Seattle/Portland Empire Builder.

The city thus will join Stanley, Devils Lake and Grand Forks in the ranks of Amtrak stations in North Dakota that do not have a ticket agent.
