First Time For Everything

Alexis Oklahoma CityAmtrak doesn’t just move trains, we move people–connecting family and friends across our more than 500 destinations. Alexis who’s taking the train from Oklahoma City to visit her grandma in Shreveport, La., is a first time rider. She says, “the train is a great way to see what you’re traveling through.”


Amtrak challenged Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York, to leave New York and capture #AmtrakStories from across the country. For 31 days, we’ll share one new portrait and story each day on our blog in celebration of the customers who ride America’s Railroad.
