Few Changes in new Amtrak System Timetable

Amtrak issued a new timetable on Jan. 11, 2016, and there are no significant changes in schedules for trains serving the Midwest.

The only change was more of a cosmetic one, showing the schedules of the Chicago-Grand Rapids, Michigan, Pere Marquette in the same timetable as other Michigan trains.

The Michigan schedules also show Thruway service between Detroit and Toronto.

The Thruway bus schedules are timed to connect with Wolverine Service trains 352 eastbound and 353 and 355 westbound.

A Chicago-Detroit Thruway bus schedule that had terminated in Detroit now operates to Toronto and has added an intermediate Michigan stop at Dearborn.

Previously, the Chicago-Detroit Thruway schedule stopped only in Kalamazoo. The new schedule has retained that stop.

The timetable cover features an Acela Express train approaching the BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport Rail Station near Baltimore.
