Amtrak is a national train operation with many stops in the US and also in Canada. Many students, faculty, and staff will take the train to Chicago instead of driving or flying. The train station is on Depot Street (see directions below) about 2 miles from North Campus. Trains operate 24 hours a day and many cabs wait for passengers in case a ride is needed. Amtrak recommends that you call their toll free number (800 872–7245) for route and price information.
