Amtrak is improving service for Hoosier State passengers who travel between Indianapolis and Chicago with the addition of complimentary on-board Wi-Fi, light food and beverages and Business Class seating,

Amtrak President/CEO Joe Boardman announced at a series of events on the route in Indiana on Wednesday.

The addition of the amenities is effective immediately. Amtrak is demonstrating its capabilities while it continues to operate this service under an Indiana Department of Transportation contract extension through Jan. 31, 2015.

“Amtrak is Indiana’s best long-term choice for safe, reliable intercity passenger rail service that connects its people, communities and businesses to the Amtrak national network,” Boardman said. “Amtrak brings proven expertise in delivering passenger rail service, railroad operations, safety and security, equipment maintenance and repair.”
