Cats And Dogs Can Ride The Train

CHICAGO (AP) – Amtrak is making it easier for travelers to take their dogs and cats on a trip.

Amtrak and the Illinois Department of Transportation have announced they are adding the Chicago-Champaign-Carbondale route of the Illini and Saluki trains to a pilot project that allows people to bring pets with them.

Small pets have been allowed on the Illinois Zephyr and Carl Sandburg trains between Chicago and Quincy since April. Those wishing to take pets must make advanced reservations and pay a $25 surcharge.

Only animals weighing 20 pounds or less will be allowed to board and they must be in carriers.
