Amtrak Routes | Train Stations
"Amtrak is the nation's intercity passenger rail operator; Amtrak connects America in safer, greener and healthier ways. With 21,000 route miles in 46 states, the District of Columbia and three Canadian provinces, Amtrak operates more than 300 trains each day — at speeds up to 150 mph — to more than 500 destinations. Amtrak also is the operator of choice for state-supported corridor services in 15 states and for four commuter rail agencies.
Travel Green with Amtrak
"More than just a convenient way to travel, Amtrak is also energy efficient. Traveling by rail contributes less per passenger mile to greenhouse gas emissions than either cars or airplanes. According to U.S. Department of Energy data, Amtrak is almost 20 percent more efficient than domestic airline travel and 28 percent more efficient than auto travel on a per-passenger-mile basis."
Acela Express Boston
The Adirondack travels daily from New York City, through the lush wine country of the Hudson Valley , into Montreal.

Or, board the southbound train anywhere along the line and arrive in mid-town Manhattan in time to enjoy dinner and nightlife in New York City.
Convenient connecting trains at New York extend your reach to Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC.

Amtrak.com To Get a Facelift
New Web Site Will Enhance Customer Service, Generate Added Revenue
In FY ’10, an updated Amtrak.com will debut with a number of new features to make it even easier for customers to electronically book train tickets, increasing sales and adding more revenue to the bottom line. The new site’s share of ticketed sales is expected to increase to more than half of all ticket sales. “The newAmtrak.com is going to increase both long-distance and short distance business by offering customers a complete view of available seating and an array of pricing options,” said Kathleen Gordon, senior director, e-Commerce. An enhanced fare finder feature will consolidate all booking functionality — reservations, train status, schedule search and the “My Trip” section— into a single dynamic menu. The new site will show full-day availability that reflects an entire day of seating inventory instead of the current maximum of 10 options available for selection. With the new view, customers will see all seating options including First Class; the current site requires additional site navigation to view these upgrades. Other features will include a shopping cart for itemized purchases; an inventory alert icon that notifies customers when seating on a given departure is limited, thus prompting sales; the launch of travel insurance options to generate ancillary revenue; and a pricing matrix that will enable customers to select the lowest price and find the fastest train. Another significant feature is enhanced service alerts for individual trains . . . "
