Please plan to attend one of the Kansas Dept. of Transportation (KDOT) Local Consult Meetings scheduled in September and October. This is an opportunity for Rail Passengers members to request, provide input and prioritize potential expansion and modernization projects. It also provides the opportunity to strengthen local partnerships and demonstrate which KDOT programs matter most to our communities and the state.
These meetings provide the best opportunity for Rail Passengers members to show support for the HEARTLAND FLYER EXTENSION project. The Northern Flyer Alliance has promoted this development through legislation, grants, consultation, and lobbying. Please help and contribute to this effort by registering to attend. For more information go to the KDOT Consult website HERE, or, contact Mark Corriston, Kansas Council Member at [email protected], or even give Mark a call at 913-406-0827.
Listed below are the meeting dates locations and times:

"When [NARP] comes to Washington, you help embolden us in our efforts to continue the progress for passenger rail. And not just on the Northeast Corridor. All over America! High-speed rail, passenger rail is coming to America, thanks to a lot of your efforts! We’re partners in this. ... You are the ones that are going to make this happen. Do not be dissuaded by the naysayers. There are thousands of people all over America who are for passenger rail and you represent the best of what America is about!"
