Jefferson City Station to Stay Put for Now

The State of Missouri has given officials in Jefferson City six more months to find a new site for an Amtrak station.

The station currently is a trailer situated in the parking lot of the Jefferson Landing State Historic Site.

The state has ordered the trailer removed in order to create additional parking spaces for state employees.

One proposed site for the trailer was nearby city-owned land, but that proposal fell through because it would have been blocked by one of the entrances to the historic site lot.

The station for several years had been located in the Union Hotel. However, it was closed in fall 2019 due to structural defects in that building.

Jefferson City is served by Amtrak’s Missouri River Runner trains between St. Louis and Kansas City.
