Utah Advocates Pushing for More Rail Service

The Utah Rail Passengers Association is pushing to expand intercity rail service within the state, including to Moab, Utah.

They have proposed a new Amtrak route that would link the Wasatch Front north to Logan, southwest to Cedar City and southeast to Grand Junction, Colorado.

Moab would need to be served via a bus from Green River, Utah, but Utah advocates say they can see Moab eventually being connected by rail.

Currently the only intercity rail passenger service in Utah is the California Zephyr which serves Green River, Helper, Provo and Salt Lake City.
