Missouri River Runner
4 daily trains connecting the Texas Eagle and Southwest Chief

Amtrak's cross-state Missouri service travels the breadth of the Show-Me State--past cultural, state and religious landmarks; verdant farmland and rolling hills; and long stretches of the Missouri River.

Service consists of 2 daily trains in each direction. Each train consists of Amfleet single-level coaches with:

  • seats reserved for passengers with special mobility needs
  • secure, quick-release bike racks--available first-come, first-served
  • a dinette/lounge car serving sandwiches, snacks and beverages
  • Midwest Business Class: an extra measure of comfort for a modest upgrade.

From any of the 8 Amtrak communities between St. Louis and Kansas City, you're just an easy connection away from exciting destinations like Albuquerque, Austin, Fort Worth, Los Angeles, San Antonio and Tucson--not to mention college towns such as Lawrence (University of Kansas).
