Getting from Chicago to Iowa City by Train?

My boyfriend goes to University of Iowa, and its a lot of money to drive up there so i am trying to find different ways to get up to Iowa city

I was really hoping if anyone knew the train schedule well enough to help me. PLEASE it would mean a lot to me, thanks

OSC (Osceola) is 150 miles from Iowa City.

The nearest train station to Iowa City is in Mount Pleasant, IA (MTP). It is 50 miles due south of Iowa City. There is bus service between the two, but you would have to spend overnight in Mount Pleasant to catch the bus. The one-way advance purchase train fare is $37.

There is one train a day, the California Zephyr. Go to

http://www.amtrak.com

and click the orange tab that says "Timetables" and then scroll down to "California Zephyr." There are two timetables: The current one and a new one effective November 8.

Do you really have your heart set on taking a train?
Burlington Trailways runs two buses a day direct between Chicago (the Greyhound Station on Harrison Street) and Iowa City. You can get schedules and fares here:

https://www.burlingtontrailways.com/

The one-way advance purchase fare is $23.
The Greyhound bus station is just down the street and around the corner from Union Station in Chicago and the bus will take you all the way to Iowa City. The bus takes a little less than 5 hours and gets you to your final destination. The train takes 3.5 hours to Mount Pleasant plus the time to get from MTP to Iowa City.
