Amtrak announced Friday that they would be limiting the number of round trips from Milwaukee to Chicago.

Starting Monday, the train will only make two round-trips between the two cities. Typically, the train makes around seven trips, so this will be a significant adjustment for commuters.

The train will still take its usual route and make it's routine stops, just not as many times throughout the day.

This change comes amid the coronavirus outbreak and Gov. Evers ban of gatherings of 10 or more people.
