Kids can ride the Amtrak Hiawatha Service trains between Milwaukee and Chicago for free on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from now through August.

One adult can bring two children ages 2-12.

Kids ride along at no charge on the daily route with stops at Milwaukee Airport, Sturtevant and Glenview, Ill., when the booking is on Amtrak.com.

Blackout dates are May 27, May 30, July 1 and 4.

Amtrak and the Department of Transportation recently added train-side, checked bicycle service. 

With nearly 800,000 annual passengers in the last year, this is the busiest Amtrak corridor in the Midwest.
