AmtrakConnect® cellular-based Wi-Fi service is arriving soon on Amtrak trains in the Midwest, with eight corridors offering this free amenity to Amtrak passengers by early February of 2014. Collectively, these routes carried nearly 3.3 million passengers in the last year (Amtrak FY2013, Oct. 2012-Sept. 2013).
Due to strong demand, Amtrak is adding additional Wolverine Service trains between Michigan and Chicago to provide expanded December and January holiday travel options.
As Amtrak connects families and friends for the holidays, America’s Railroad® is also celebrating the season by offering a variety of Amtrak-related gifts at the
Amtrak Store, providing a chance to send customized rail themed video eCards, and will have a model train circling the National Christmas Tree.
