Amtrak 'Multi-Ride' 2011 Costs - Amtrak Commuter Pass / Monthly Pass for the Philly-NYC Commuter.
From the Amtrak site:
"Multi-Ride Tickets, which allow you to ride multiple times within a set amount of time, are available in monthly, ten-ride, six-ride and two-ride options. Multi-Ride Tickets are not accepted on all routes. Read the Multi-Ride Tickets terms and conditions for travel, reservation and ticket requirements."
These prices I got today from the amtrak.com site and are between stations PHL and NYP
$1,242.00 One Monthly Ticket
The monthly ticket is valid for unlimited travel for an entire calendar month.
$552.00 One Ten-Ride Ticket
The ten-ride ticket is valid for ten rides within a 45-day period.

Amtrak reaches 16-straight months of ridership growth
Amtrak will grow for sure, the trend is unmistakable. I'd like to see the growth for the Northeast Regional trains, not just the Acela. The Regional numbers will show the importance of the NEC for the average commuter and why continued investment in our rail system is needed.
