Iowa City Mayor Matt Hayek will travel to Des Moines Oct. 24 to speak at an information session on a passenger rail in Iowa.

He will be joined by representatives from Michigan and Illinois.

The Transit 2030 Task Force, made up of Des Moines business and community leaders, are sponsoring the event.

City officials have discussed the possibility of a rail service linking Chicago to Iowa City for the past four years. The rail service would also eventually provide transportation to Des Moines, western Iowa, and Omaha.

A $230 million grant was given to the project last year.
