Amtrak to Continue Saturday Late Night Trains from Milwaukee to Chicago

Amtrak Hiawatha Service passengers can continue to make evening plans on Saturday nights because late night trips between Chicago and Milwaukee will continue.

The attached schedule shows Train 343, departing from Chicago at 11:10 p.m., and Train 344, departing from Milwaukee at 10:40 p.m.

Until further notice, these Saturday evening trains replace Trains 329 and 330, which continue to operate on weekdays.

Amtrak has arranged for a Thruway Bus Service at 6 a.m. between Milwaukee and Chicago to replace Train 330 on Saturdays.

The Saturday late evening trains have shown higher ridership during a trial period than the early morning trains they replaced.

Amtrak Hiawatha Service trains, running between Milwaukee and Chicago, are jointly sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Illinois Department of Transportation. About 800,000 passengers rode last year, with intermediate stops at Glenview, Ill., and at Sturtevant and Milwaukee’s General Mitchell Airport in Wisconsin, one of the top six Amtrak routes nationally.

Since ticket windows are closed in the late evening, advance e-ticket purchases through, the Amtrak Mobile App, or at station Quik-Trak kiosks (except Glenview) are encouraged, but passengers can be ticketed on board without penalty. For more information, see the attached schedule or visit
