Passenger train service between Kansas City and St. Louis will remain an AMTRAK affair. A private company in St. Joseph has decided not to bid on the job. The state sinks more than $6-Million in subsidies into the AMTRAK service, but Herzog Transit Services had said it could perform the same service for much less. Herzog says it won’t bid on the service because AMTRAK is not cooperating on access to the St. Louis train station and on ticketing.
