Extra Wolverines Being Added for Holiday Travel

Amtrak will operate an extra section of the Wolverine Service between Chicago and Ann Arbor, Mich., on select days during the December and January holiday season.

Eastbound Wolverine extra No. 356 will depart Chicago Union Station at 9:20 a.m. on Dec. 26, 27, 28, 31, and on Jan. 3 and 4. It will make intermediate station stops at New Buffalo, Niles, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and Jackson, Mich., before arriving in Ann Arbor at 3 p.m.

Westbound Wolverine extra No. 359 will depart Ann Arbor at 4:05 p.m. and operate on the same days and make the same intermediate stops as No. 356 before arriving in Chicago at 7:45 p.m.

Neither train will operate Dec. 29-30 or Jan. 1-2. The three regularly scheduled Wolverine Service roundtrips between Chicago and Detroit (Pontiac) will operate daily as scheduled during this period.

In a news release, Amtrak said the success of its extra trains during the Thanksgiving travel period, which carried more than 35,000 passengers, prompted the added trains in December and January.
