Eau Claire Seeking Bus Link to Tomah Amtrak Station

The city council in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, on Tuesday approved a resolution supporting a shuttle service to link the city with the Amtrak station in Tomah, Wisconsin.

The shuttle would board in Eau Claire at the bus transfer center.

The Amtrak shuttle has been discussed in Eau Claire for years. City council member Jeremy Gragert said connecting Eau Claire to an Amtrak station will still help commuters.

“I also live in the city without a car and other people do as well,” he said. “A lot of students and a lot of people maybe are too young to drive, too old to drive.”

The resolution asks the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to establish the shuttle service, which also would stop in Black River Falls.

Eau Claire has never had Amtrak service and been without intercity rail passenger service since the Chicago & North Western ended service there in 1963.
