ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) -- Amtrak has suspended traffic on a route that runs from Kansas City to St. Louis because of flooding in Missouri.

Amtrak spokesman Craig Schulz says the cancellations started Wednesday.

He says passengers with tickets on the River Runner will be bused on Thursday, though that service will bypass the two cities that are popular because of nearby wineries.

Train service from Kansas City to Jefferson City will resume Friday. People going on to St. Louis will have to ride a bus.

The Amtrak route shares a line that is also used for freight traffic.
