The National Railroad Passenger Corporation
Amtrak is America's only national passenger rail service. It
provides safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly
transportation throughout the United States. From hometowns
to business and travel destinations, Amtrak's 23,000 miles of
track serves more than 500 communities nationwide.
Amtrak customers make approximately 21 million trips
annually on Amtrak trains. Another 33 million people ride
Amtrak-operated commuter trains each year. By joining with
states and cities to meet the changing demands of local and
regional travellers, Amtrak is now the largest provider of
commuter service in the United States.
And to secure the future of national passenger rail, Amtrak is
increasing capital investments in modern and safe technology
and rail infrastructure. It will launch state-of-the-art high-speed
rail service between Washington, D.C. and Boston in 1999.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., Amtrak is comprised of
three strategic business units --- Northeast Corridor
(Philadelphia), Intercity (Chicago), and Amtrak West (Oakland).
Its workforce of more than 23,000 employees is dedicated to
meeting the needs of rail travellers nationwide.
