WICHITA, Kansas (AP) - Supporters of passenger rail service through Wichita are joining forces with officials in Oklahoma and Missouri.

Rail supporters say they want to close the 185-mile service gap between Oklahoma City and Wichita.

Wichita Vice Mayor Pete Meitzner says Kansas will contribute $3 million for the city to pursue federal funding for the project, contingent on Oklahoma providing $2.3 million.
It is estimated to cost $90 million for the expanded rail service.
