JEFFERSON CITY — MoDOT is seeking public opinion on the future of the state's rail service.

The public can participate in the online survey at the Missouri Department of Transportation's website

According to a MoDot news release, the survey covers the challenges, opportunities, costs and benefits of a state rail plan.

“We’re launching efforts to develop a state rail plan for Missouri,” MoDOT Director Kevin Keith said. “And we need your help to plan properly for the future.”

Survey results, along with other information collected through public involvement, will be used to help MoDOT create a comprehensive rail plan that addresses freight rail development, passenger rail and crossing safety, according to the release.
