4 Intercity Passenger Rail Service in U.S. operated by Amtrak (National Railroad Passenger Corporation) intercity passenger rail services in 46 states and D.C. provides contract service for several commuter rail agencies created by U.S. Congress - Rail Passenger Service Act, 1970 Amtrak Board of Control sets policy and oversees management appointed by President Secretary of Transportation in an ex officio member Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) administers grants to Amtrak REES Module #5 - Transit, Commuter and Intercity Passenger Rail 4

5 Amtrak Rail Network REES Module #5 - Transit, Commuter and Intercity Passenger Rail 5

6 REES Module #5 - Transit, Commuter and Intercity Passenger Rail 6

7 Over 27 million annual passengers on Amtrak On an average day - 75,000 passengers ride on up to 300 Amtrak trains Last year, Amtrak trains in the Northeast corridor (Washington-Boston) carried almost 10 million passengers New York City is the busiest station 21,000 miles of routes, 19,000 employees REES Module #5 - Transit, Commuter and Intercity Passenger Rail 7

8 70% of miles traveled by Amtrak trains are on tracks owned by other railroads - host railroads BNSF is the largest host railroad for Amtrak Amtrak pays host railroads for use of their track and resources to operate the trains REES Module #5 - Transit, Commuter and Intercity Passenger Rail 8

9 Intercity Passenger Rail Service in Canada operated by VIA Rail (similar to Amtrak) REES Module #5 - Transit, Commuter and Intercity Passenger Rail 9

10 High Speed Rail (HSR) a rail line and service designed for high speed operation - cruising speed of 125+ mph Japanese introduced the first high speed trains in the mid 1960s Shinkansen (Bullet Train) today high speed rail lines are common in France, Germany, United Kingdom, China, and many other countries REES Module #5 - Transit, Commuter and Intercity Passenger Rail 10
