Top 10 Highest Growing Amtrak Routes

Thanks to the loyalty of our awesome passengers, July set a record as the best month ever in the history of Amtrak!

States like Illinois, Virginia, Michigan and California led the charge. And since everyone likes a winner, the route between Chicago to St. Louis called the Lincoln Service experienced the single most growth over last July. (And they say not to mess with Texas! Sheesh)

To commemorate our highest growing routes, we’re letting you show us what they’re really like. Here are your pictures from July’s top Amtrak routes for ridership growth:
