Amtrak Adds Free Wi-Fi To All Michigan Trains

You can now surf while riding the rails. Amtrak now has free Wi-Fi on all of its trains heading to and from its Chicago hub, including the three lines in the state of Michigan. The Michigan Department of Transportation spent $1 million for the installation according to Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari.


There will be some restrictions on the use of the service, as no video streaming will be allowed.


Amtrak serves over 1,000,000 passengers a year in Michigan on the Wolverine, Pere Marquette, and Blue Water lines.
