Airline travel sets record, highway travel up in 2023

Travel by planes, trains, and automobiles was up across Iowa in 2023. D-O-T spokesperson Stuart Anderson says airplane travel led the way.

Travel on the state roadways in the last year was also above the pre-pandemic level.

He says there was an increase in rail shipping of some products that had slowed during the pandemic.

Anderson provided the numbers during the State Transportation Commission meeting Tuesday.
