We Continue To Break Records, Thanks to You!

Thanks to you, our awesome passengers, we’ve reached a record 31.6 million riders this year!

With more than 300 trains, serving 500 destinations in 46 states, as well as three Canadian provinces, we are proud to connect small towns to big cities and everywhere in between. We know many of our passengers have their favorite or most frequented route, so we wanted to share the breakdown of the 20, count that 20, Amtrak routes that achieved annual ridership records in 2013.
