Your Voice Matters: Help Bring Amtrak to Bald Knob!

Attention, Bald Knob residents! We need your help to make a significant impact on the future of rail travel in Arkansas. As part of our ongoing efforts to secure an Amtrak stop in our city, the Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) is conducting a survey to update the Arkansas Rail Plan – and we need your input!

Why it Matters:

By participating in this survey, you’re advocating for improved access to passenger service in Northeastern Arkansas, with Bald Knob as the ideal location for a stop. Your feedback will help highlight the importance of affordable travel options for medical, business, and leisure purposes.

What to Include:

When you take the survey, pay special attention to the “New Connection and Service” section. Here’s what to mention:

1. Advocate for a Bald Knob stop to serve Northeast Arkansas residents, providing essential travel access.

2. Support a Little Rock to Memphis passenger train, facilitating connections to the City of New Orleans train and future Memphis to Nashville service.

How to Participate:

Time is of the essence! The survey deadline is February 13th. Don’t miss this opportunity to make your voice heard and shape the future of rail transportation in our state.
