Amtrak’s intercity commuter rail service is provided in nearby Milwaukee. The Hiawatha route operates 14 trains daily between Milwaukee and Chicago, making stops at both General Mitchell International Airport and the Intermodal Station at 433 W. St. Paul Avenue.

In addition to commuter options, Milwaukee provides a range of transportation services for businesses through the Port of Milwaukee, freight rail lines and numerous trucking companies.
