Extra Kalamazoo/Ann Arbor Amtrak trains offered again this holiday season

Due to strong demand, Amtrak is adding additional Wolverine Service trains between Michigan and Chicago to provide expanded December and January holiday travel options. Passengers should book their tickets now for best availability and pricing.

Amtrak will offer an additional eastbound and an additional westbound Wolverine Service train between Chicago and Ann Arbor on December 22, 26, 27, 29 and 31 and on January 1 and 3. Ordinarily, Amtrak provides three daily round-trips from Chicago through Ann Arbor, with continuing service to and from Detroit-area stations.

The extra Wolverines (Trains 356 and 359) will operate in addition to regular Wolverines (Trains 350-355). Please see the attached schedules, which include the Blue Water (Trains 364 and 365), that share the Wolverine route between Battle Creek and Chicago.

The extra trains were added with the encouragement of the Michigan Department of Transportation and permission of Norfolk Southern and CN railroads.
