NBC Montana: Amtrak restores daily service across Montana's Hi-Line

By: NBC Montana Staff

MISSOULA, Mont. - The Empire Builder across Montana's Hi-Line is back in business as Amtrak restores its daily service after cutting back during the pandemic.

The Empire Builder runs between Chicago and the Northwest, with stops in Montana towns like Shelby and Whitefish.

Amtrak officials say they've hired close to 1,500 new employees this year and are reopening routes around the country.

The route resumes daily service on May 23.

Montana U.S. Sen. Jon Tester expressed his support for the decision on Monday.

Tester's office released the following statement: "This announcement is long overdue, and it's great news for folks living on the Hi-Line who depend on daily Amtrak service to support our state's rural economies and to stay connected to family and friends. I've been fighting to defend Montana from attempts to cripple Amtrak service in rural America, and I have been proud to lead the fight to return full, daily service to our state, which will grow our economy along our Northern Tier."
