Amtrak announces midnight train on Saturday nights during Summerfest
If you live in Chicago, Racine or Kenosha on Saturdays during Summerfest, you can take the train to the festival in Milwaukee, then head back home on the special Amtrak midnight train departing from the Milwaukee Intermodal Station at 11:55 PM.
There will be a free midnight train shuttle bus from Summerfest to the train station.
