Amtrak and the Illinois Department of Transportation have launched a pilot project to allow travelers to bring their pets onboard the Illinois Zephyr and Carl Sandburg trains traveling between Chicago and Quincy, Ill.The project will allow riders with dogs or cats weighing up to 20 pounds to be accepted in animal carriers and placed at the riders' feet under their seats, Amtrak officials said in a press release. Reservations are required and a $25 surcharge will be assessed.Ticketing and travel with pets can begin only at staffed stations in Chicago, Naperville and Galesburg, Ill., with advance registration required. Reservations are available for travel from May 5 through Nov. 2."Amtrak is supportive of accommodating pets on trains, and through direct collaboration with the Illinois Department of Transportation and a working group led by U.S. Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), we are optimistic a plan can be reached to address the needs and concerns of all our passengers," said Amtrak Chief Executive Officer Joe Boardman.
