Expanded Thruway Bus Service partnership with Greyhound Lines

CHICAGO — More communities in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee now can connect to Amtrak trains in Chicago and Indianapolis using buses operated by Greyhound Lines, Inc. People and businesses in Nashville, Tenn., and Gary, Ind., are now able to more easily access the Amtrak national network to meet their travel needs.

Passengers traveling between Indianapolis and points north to Chicago will also now have more schedule choices by riding the Amtrak Cardinal and Hoosier State (Trains 50/850 & 51/851) in one direction and the option of returning by bus, all booked through or the Amtrak Mobile apps.

This is an extension of ticketing previously done by Amtrak between Chicago and Louisville, via Indianapolis. Schedules attached.

The service expansion is another example of the growing business relationship between Amtrak and Greyhound that has led the motor coach operator to open a ticket office at Chicago Union Station.
