Amtrak says cuts are final

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

The executive director for Amtrak said that the decision to cut the ticket agent positions in both Havre and Shelby, are final. This, after Senator Jon Tester, expressed concerns following the initial announcement in April. 

According to the Havre Daily News, Stephen Gardner wrote in a letter to Senator Tester that both of the stations see less than 40 passengers a day, and the cuts will save the company around $200,000. He said that money would allow them to deploy these savings to investment and company improvements. Gardner did say that even though those positions are gone, the onboard crew will help any passengers in need. As for buying tickets, you can buy online or from the conductor.
