HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Amtrak is getting back to somewhat normal after a long pandemic, which could be big news for travelers in Hastings.

Hastings is just one of the Amtrak stations in central Nebraska, and in a report from the train service at the end of the 2019 fiscal year Amtrak reported that over four thousand people came and went from that station.

A spokesperson with Amtrak said they are trying to get back on track after a rough pandemic.

“Overall as a company, we are 65% 70% of normal. Which is a lot better than some other modes are doing right now especially local transit. Those trains are not nearly as full as ours are,” Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said.

But in spite of starting to get back to normal operations, passengers still have to wear masks on the train regardless of vaccination status.
