Annual Amtrak Ridership Sets All-Time Record; Fifth Straight Year of Increases

Ridership Tops 25.8 Million, $1.5 Billion in Passenger Revenue

 

WASHINGTON — Amtrak ridership in Fiscal Year 2007 increased to 25,847,531, marking the fifth straight year of gains and setting a record for the most passengers using Amtrak trains since the National Railroad Passenger Corporation started operations in 1971.

 

This total, for the period October 1, 2006-September 30, 2007, topped the 24,306,965 for the previous 12 months and is greater than the passenger count of 25.03 million reached in 2004, before Amtrak transitioned some services to a commuter rail operator.

I'm guessing less and less people are flying every year since of 9/11. I don't blame them.
