Hiawatha Service: Reservations Required During the Thanksgiving Holiday Travel Period

Effective Tuesday, November 21 through Monday, November 27, 2017


Make Your Hiawatha Service Reservations Now For the Thanksgiving Holiday

To better accommodate the increased number of travelers expected during the busy Thanksgiving holiday period, reservations will be required on all Hiawatha Service trains from Tuesday, Nov. 21 through Monday, Nov. 27. During this period, your ticket will only be valid on the train you are holding a reservation for.

In addition, we are adding cars to provide overflow seating on selected trains on Nov. 21 and Nov. 22.

Our monthly and ten-ride ticket holders will not need reservations.
