State of Illinois supported Amtrak trains will resume full service soon.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says the Lincoln Service, Carl Sandburg/Illinois Zephyr and Illini/Saluki trains will resume full service on Monday. Service levels had been reduced by half due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the resumption of a full schedule, there will be three daily roundtrips between Chicago and Carbondale (including the Amtrak national City of New Orleans), five daily roundtrips between Chicago and St. Louis (including the Amtrak national Texas Eagle), two daily roundtrips between Chicago and Quincy.

Tickets for Amtrak trains can be purchased at amtrak.com/midwest for travel beginning July 19.
