KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Amtrak will partially restore rail service this week between Kansas City and St. Louis after flooding forced a temporary suspension in May.

Beginning Thursday, morning departures from both cities will operate again on the Missouri River Route, Amtrak said in a news release.

Charter buses will continue to be used for afternoon departures. Amtrak offers two daily round-trip services between the two cities.

Flooding issues on the Union Pacific Railroad network led freight train traffic to be diverted to the Missouri River Runner route on May 21.

Passengers should still expect delays. Those with reservations should visit for more information.
