The reduced summer schedules of Chicago-Detroit (Pontiac) Wolverine Service trains have been extended through Oct. 30.
Amtrak said in a service advisory that the extension was agreed to by the Michigan Department of Transportation, which funds the Wolverine Service, to accommodate additional track and signal improvements.
The track rehabilitation is expected to result in improved reliability, a smoother ride and an expansion of the Midwest’s first 110 mph Amtrak service.
Wolverine trains will operate on the following schedules:
- One Wolverine round-trip (trains 351 and 354) operates between Chicago and Pontiac seven days a week.
- Wolverine trains 355 and 358 operate between Chicago and Pontiac Monday through Saturday.
- The regular schedule of all Wolverine trains (Nos. 350 through 355) will operate between Chicago and Pontiac on Sundays only.
