Missouri River Runner Ridership up in Jefferson City

The Missouri Department of Transportation reported that ridership on the Missouri River Runners spiked 5 percent between July and October at Jefferson City.

Thus far this year, ridership has been 13,950. Last year’s patronage for the same period was 13,330.

MDOT Officials believe the ridership boost has been the result of increased gas prices and successful summer promotions attracting new riders.

Officials had blamed falling gasoline prices for a decline in ridership of the  St. Louis-Kansas City trains.
