Is it safe to travel by train from St Louis to Milwaukee right now?

We stand behind CDC guidelines that caution passengers against non-essential travel during the coronavirus outbreak. That said, we recognize not everyone is in a position to completely abstain.

If you’re one of those individuals who still needs to book a trip, you can continue to do so on Wanderu.
