Amtrak, is the brand name of the intercity passenger train system created on May 1, 1971 in the United States. Officially known as the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, the name "Amtrak" is a portmanteau of the words "American" and "track."
Nominally, Amtrak is an independent for-profit corporation, but all of its preferred stock is owned by the federal government. The members of Amtrak's board of directors are appointed by the President of the United States, and are subject to confirmation by the United States Senate. Some common stock is held by the private railroads that transferred their passenger service to Amtrak in 1971. Though Amtrak stock does not pay dividends and is not routinely traded, a small number of private investors have purchased Amtrak stock from its original owners.
Amtrak employs over 19,000 people. The nationwide network of 22,000 miles of routes serves 500 communities in 46 of the United States, with some of the routes serving communities in Canada. In fiscal year 2004, Amtrak routes served over 25 million passengers, a company record.
Amtrak Routes and Services
As a general rule, even-numbered routes run north and east while odd numbered routes run south and west. However, some routes, such as the Pacific Surfliners, use the exact opposite numbering system, which they inherited from the previous operators of similar routes, such as the Santa Fe Railroad. Amtrak gives each of its train routes a name. These names often reflect the rich and complex history of the route itself, or of the area traversed by the route.
Most popular routes include those on the Northeast Corridor (Acela Express, Metroliner, and Regional services) that serve Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, and Boston.
On the west coast, San Joaquins (Sacramento/Oakland - Bakersfield, California), Pacific Surfliner (San Luis Obispo - San Diego, California, via Los Angeles), and the Capitol Corridor (Auburn, California - Sacramento - San Jose via Oakland) provide service more than once daily.
Likewise, the Keystone Service, operating between Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Philadelphia (and to New York City), the Hiawatha, with service between Chicago and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Empire Service between New York City and Albany, New York, the Downeaster between Boston and Portland, Maine, and the Amtrak Cascades (Vancouver, British Columbia - Eugene, Oregon via Portland, Oregon and Seattle) operate more than once daily.
Amtrak Express provides small package and less-than-truckload shipping services between more than 100 cities. Amtrak Express also offers station-to-station shipment of human remains to many express cities. At smaller stations, funeral directors must load and unload the shipment onto and off the train. Amtrak also hauled mail for the United States Postal Service as well as time sensitive freight shipments, but discontinued these services in October of 2004.
