Passenger Trains


Amtrak Acela

Amtrak

Inter-city passenger trains in America are struggling to make a comeback. Amtrak has purchased new locomotives and cars, making the trains more reliable.

Amtrak is trying very hard to regain some share of the passenger market, with special promotions and improved service. Realizing that they can't compete with airlines for speed, instead they choose to appeal to folks who want a more enjoyable trip. The philosophy seems to be working, many routes are gaining passengers.

If you'd like to read more about what it's like to ride on Amtrak, be sure to visit our Trip Reports page.


Rapid Transit and Light Rail

Many U.S. cities are building light rail and rapid transit systems. St. Louis, Denver, Portland, San Diego, Los Angeles, Salt Lake and Seattle are among the many cities that are either expanding the system they already have or building a system. The technologies vary from city to city, ranging from vintage trolleys to brand new state-of-the-art subways. They all share a common goal, to help relieve some of the congestion in urban areas, and to give people an option other than driving their automobiles.
