    Visitors to Chicago should use this valuable transportation resource. We were able to cover a lot of ground at a fraction of the cost of ride share cars. Get advice from locals if your have concerns about safety on specific routes at specific times of day but we always felt safe when we traveled.

    The Ogilvie Transportation Center (the former NorthWestern Station) has a a decent collection of fast food restaurant in middle of this busy train station. Note this is a dedicated commuter train station, so the crowds and services in side the station thin out after the evening commute is done.

    I’ve been riding the Milwaukee District North Line for 35 years. When I first began commuting, it was the gold standard. Trains always on-time, never late for work or late getting home, except during occasional inclement weather. Now, there is an average of at least one 15 minute and sometimes a 30 minute delay every week, even during perfect weather. Conductors are pleasant and the value for the $$$ is good, but you cannot count of getting where you need to be on-time. If you are traveling outside of rush hour, just count on your train being delayed to to “signal problems”. Still, it beats driving if you’re going all the way downtown, but not worth the interminable delays midday and if you’re only traveling a few stops away.

    We traveled Chicago to San Antonio this part was not a great amtrak trip. Our sleeping accommodation (bedroom) was really showing its age. Also, there was a smell of sewage and diesel that would come into the room periodically. Flex dining was okay and the cafe attendant was awesome. The route Chicago to San Antonio doesn't have an observation car or classic dining car. There are tables for the sleeper customers though. Most of the staff was indifferent and could care less about good service. The rails/ride was very rough at times. Skip this part of the route and chose one of the great Western options.
