St. Paul Empire Builder

Reader Survey: What Would You Pay for Minneapolis-Duluth Rail Service?

On March 27, we posted about the numbers surrounding the proposed $600 million investment to bring Amtrak rail service along a corridor between Minneapolis and Duluth.

Many of you shared your stories of rail and bus travel, and many expressed a deep appreciation for the comfort and conveniences of travel by rail.

In an effort to learn more about our readers’ interest, I prepared a short, anonymous Google Form survey to collect (admittedly heavily skewed) data related to where people are going and how much they would be willing to pay for the Amtrak service.

Check out the short, anonymous survey here!
