Kirkwood’s historic 1893 train station located in the heart of downtown is point of pride and symbol of the community. It was on the verge of closing in 2002, but in April, 2003 the City purchased the station from Amtrak and has maintained and staffed the station with volunteers ever since. In 2014 it was rated number one among Amtrak stations for “overall station experience”.

The station currently serves as a stop on the Amtrak Missouri River Runner route between Kansas City and St. Louis. The southbound and northbound trains each make 2 stops daily at the Kirkwood Station. Kirkwood, of the ten stops along the route, ranks behind only St. Louis and Kansas City in terms of ridership ons and offs.
