LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — It's the final day for Amtrak trains on the Hoosier State passenger line between Indianapolis and Chicago.
The last train from Indianapolis to Chicago left the station early Sunday.
The rail agency pulled the plug on the route after a loss of funding in Indiana's new state budget. Amtrak won't run the four-days-a-week train after Sunday. That's when its $3 million annual state subsidy ends.
State officials say the ridership numbers were too low and the per-passenger subsidy of about $100 was too high.
