Chicago to East Lansing Amtrak

Hi. I am considering taking the train from Chicago to East Lansing when I visit later in the year. Can anybody tell me how reliable this service is and also if it is safe for a solo female traveller? Thanks

When you take the train you should always use common sense, particularly at the stations. However, traveling by train is definitely safe, and an enjoyable way to travel. You can bring your own food or purchase it on the train (as well as beverages). You can be as sociable (or not) as you want. Just be patient with the time schedule; AMTRAK is not always the most timely. My advice? Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Have taken the train between East Lansing and Chicago many times and it's great to kick back and not have to worry about the traffic.
