Amtrak will operate an additional round trip between Chicago and Kalamazoo over Labor Day weekend. Stops include Niles, MI and the beachfront station at New Buffalo. The westbound will arrive in Chicago at 7:30 am. The eastbound will depart Chicago at 10:00 pm.
This may be a trial run of a new schedule pattern that will have 5 daily departures, spread out throughout the day, making Western Michigan to Chicago day trips practical.
