Amtrak On Pace to Break Ridership Record
Amtrak announced that it is on pace to break its annual ridership record carrying a best ever 13,619,770 passengers during the first six months of fiscal year 2010. The 13.6 million passengers who rode on Amtrak trains during the first two quarters of FY 2010 (October 2009 - March 2010) is about 100,000 more riders than the 13.5 million posted in FY 2008 and that was the best ridership year in company history (Amtrak carried 28.7 million passengers for FY 2008). Summer is a busy season for Amtrak so the final six months of the FY are historically busier than the first six.
