September 15, 2022
The looming threat of a national rail strike has already begun reshaping plans for Minnesota rail passengers as some train schedules were suspended Wednesday and others targeted for temporary shutdown.
Northstar Line commuter Quetina Mulbah said she'll probably start driving if the train service switches to buses, which could happen as soon as Friday, according to Metro Transit.
And Dan Daley of St. Louis Park said he has rescheduled an overnight trip Friday to Minot, N.D., aboard Amtrak's Empire Builder.
