From an Associated Press story on Channel 7 WSAW:

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Amtrak says its passenger train service between Milwaukee and Chicago continues to set ridership records.

It says more than 64,000 passengers used the trains in May, another all-time monthly record.

For the first five months of the year, the seven daily Hiawatha Service round trips carried more than 281,000 passengers. Amtrak says that’s a 24 percent increase over last year.
