Transportation and Location

Farmington’s strategic location in southeast Missouri puts it within proximity to the major downtown St. Louis market (69 miles), along with the conveniences of several transportation methods, making residential and business commute trouble-free. More than 105 miles of public streets wind through Farmington, in addition to a regional airport and other public and private transportation services.

Farmington Regional Airport is a city-owned, public-use airport situated on approximately 170 acres of land. Currently, the airport features a 75’ x 4,221’ runway with 100’ displaced threshold on the south end, pilot controlled lighting, instrument approaches and self-serve or assisted fueling. In 2009, the city constructed a new terminal facility that offers 24-hour access to a pilot’s lounge complete with vending areas, shower facilities, laundry, flight planning center and a conference room. Work on the parallel taxiway, connecting lanes and apron improvements are scheduled for completion. Expansions and improvements are frequent at this community facility.

The Union Pacific Railroad owns east-west tracks extending from the main north-south line at Bismarck to Park Hills/Bonne Terre, in the northern development area of Farmington, to Ste. Genevieve, and connections to the Burlington Northern Railroad. Several sections have extensive sidings in place.

Utilized mostly by the area’s elderly and handicapped residents, the Southeast Missouri Transportation Service provides transport for those requesting the service. The Southeast Missouri Transportation Services offers one bus solely for Farmington area residents, plus one bus that serves the entire county.

On top of all this, Farmington is home to a number of additional transportation services, including two taxi services within the city – as well as a handful of others that lie within county lines – and services operated by such entities as nursing homes and medical centers.
