Amtrak offers free summer rides for children

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Kids may ride for free on Amtrak trains between Chicago and Milwaukee during weekends this summer.

In a press release Monday, Amtrak officials say adults may bring kids ages 2 to 12 with them for free on Hiawatha Service trains. The free tickets are available most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through August.

Hiawatha Service trains travel between Chicago and Milwaukee with stops in Sturtevant, Wisconsin and Glenview, Illinois.

The line makes seven round trips Monday through Saturday, and six round trips on Sundays.

Each adult may bring two children at no charge.

The Hiawatha line is the busiest corridor in the Midwest, with more than 800,000 passengers annually.
