Amtrak Service Stopped Through Much of North Dakota

Posted: Updated:
Amtrak passengers traveling from Fargo hoping to get off the train in either Grand Forks, Devils Lake, or Rugby will have to take a bus for the final leg of their trip for the next four months.

Rail repairs on the stretch of track from Fargo to Minot will force the Empire Builder through a different route that will bypass those stops.

Upon arrival in Fargo, passengers scheduled to get off in those three North Dakota communities will instead board a bus for the rest of the trip.

Those wishing to board Amtrak at those locations headed west will be bussed to Minot to get on the train.

The Empire Builder will continue its normal service for eastbound routes during the construction time that is scheduled to wrap up September 30th when normal service would resume.

BNSF Railway Company plans on investing $400 million dollars in the state.

Amtrak uses that line.
