FRA Map Proposes Route Connecting Kansas City to Tulsa and Oklahoma City


TULSA, Okla. (KOKI) — The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has released a new map that proposes a route connecting Kansas City with Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

KOKI TV in Tulsa reports that the route would be an extension of the Heartland Flyer that currently connects Fort Worth, Texas, with Oklahoma City. Right now, the train doesn’t go any further than that.

The map is only preliminary, but passenger rail advocates say it shows the federal government is open to the idea of expanding Amtrak service.
