Oklahoma City_State lawmakers in Kansas are moving forward with a joint feasibility study on expanding an Amtrak route from Oklahoma to Kansas. John Dougherty with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation says Kansas officials are looking at whether to extend passenger rail service into their state.
Several Oklahoma cities also have endorsed the proposed expansion of the existing Heartland Flyer to Kansas City, Missouri, by way of Newton, Kansas. The Heartland Flyer currently has daily service between Oklahoma City and Fort Worth.
Officials estimate the Kansas study will be finished in six to nine months then it'll be submitted to legislators for consideration. Dougherty says if the Kansas legislature approves funding the new Amtrak route could begin operating as early as 2010.
