Proposed Amtrak line would mean millions for Wichita — Eagle

WICHITA – The proposed Amtrak Northern Flyer train line that would run through Wichita could generate $3.20 in regional economic impact for every $1 invested, according to a new study.

“Overall economic impact shows a break-even return after the first year with a continuing $43 million annual impact,” a summary of the study said.

Estimates project that about 30,700 train riders would visit Wichita each year and spend an average of $105. That would land the city about $3.2 million in tourism dollars a year.
