Funny, I thought GuyFawkes10 was suggesting that the people would indeed fly to STL, and then shuttles would drive them back to Quincy. Sounds like enplanements to me.

With all due respect, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that there has got to be a rule against what you are suggesting. In order to receive the federal aviation grant, there have to be 10,000 enplanements. (Enplanements are not the number of tickets that are sold, it's the number of ticketed passengers who actually travel on the flights.) If what you're suggesting was allowed, the…

Is there a list somewhere on the city's website of how many council meetings attended and or missed by aldermen? If not there should be. That is just as important if not more than Mayor Moore's City report card ie., "how are we doing".

This is off topic, but your claims like this really need a link, instead of you spewing Democrat talking points on every issue. "a guy paid by oil companies to tell you that extreme levels of his company's byproduct are okeydokey can be more convincing than the near-entirety of Earth's scientists" Who is that oil company guy? And who is "the near entirety" guy? I read the actual…

Amtrak corridor group meets in Quincy

Amtrak corridor group meets in Quincy

8 months, 3 weeks ago by Bob Gough

Discussions include marketing, branding and potential expansion

Quincy served host for this year's Amtrak corridor meeting and officials are looking to the future.

Along with discussion on ridership numbers for the Illinois Zephyr and the Carl Sandburg, the two trains that run between Quincy and Chicago, expansion is on the mind of many of the attendees. 

While links from the line off to the Quad Cities or over to Springfield to hook up with the under-construction high speed rail corridor are possible, Derrick James with Amtrak says funding must be in place.

James says the current ridership numbers between Quincy and Chicago are strong and bode well for the future. 

State Sen. John Sullivan of Rushville said the state budget has $38 million for Amtrak and that is the most the state has ever provided. 

Others attending today's conference in Quincy include Mayor Kyle Moore, State Rep. Jil Tracy, State Sen. Darin LaHood of Peoria, State Rep. Donald Moffitt of Galesburg, State Rep. Norrine Hammond of Macomb and Mayor Mike Inman of Macomb.
