Some Hiawatha Service Trains to Remain Suspended

Amtrak said this week that the suspension of some Chicago-Milwaukee Hiawatha Service trains has been extended.

In a service advisory, the passenger carrier said the suspensions will continue due to continued low ridership.

However, Amtrak said that starting Feb. 1 it will add a pair of early morning trains, Nos. 329 and 330.

Trains 331, 337 and 339 will continue to operate from Chicago and Trains 332, 338 and 342 from Milwaukee in order to provide daily morning, afternoon and evening trips.

The advisory said ridership will continue to be evaluated and service restorations are expected later this year.

The Hiawatha Service is funded by the states of Wisconsin and Illinois.
