CARBONDALE – Amtrak rail passenger service, significantly reduced during the COVID-19 pandemic, will resume full service on Monday.
The Illinois Department of Transportation announced last week that the full pre-pandemic schedule will return with trains between Chicago and points south and west in Illinois.
The COVID-19 crisis forced service to be cut by half. Tickets are available for purchase from Amtrak online starting Monday.
Daily, there will be five round-trips between Chicago and St. Louis, two round-trips between Chicago and Quincy and three round-trips between Chicago and Carbondale.
