New Green Bay-Milwaukee Amtrak bus service begins
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A new Amtrak Thruway Bus Service now provides two daily round-trip buses between Green Bay and Milwaukee, with stops in Appleton, Oshkosh and Fond du Lac.
It is being provided by Amtrak, in coordination with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
The service will allow travelers to make a same-day round trip between the I-41 cities and Chicago, as well as Milwaukee's Mitchell Airport, Sturtevant and Glenview, Illinois.
Adult bus-train fares from Green Bay to Chicago are as low as $39 each way. Bus-only fares from Green Bay to Milwaukee are as low as $28 each way.
The bus will be operated by Wisconsin Coach Lines/Coach USA Milwaukee.
The new bus service addresses the gap in I-41 service that resulted from the Greyhound service cancellation last October, according to a press release. It supplements the existing Lamers daily round-trip on I-41 and the Jefferson Lines an Indian Trails buses that travel on I-43.
