United States

Total: Data represent the sum of the subcategories in this table.

Pipeline and freight rail: Detailed subcategory data are not applicable because expenditures for these two modes are primarily by the private sector.

Intercity passenger rail: Federal payments to the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) were $806 million in 1995, according to the 1997 U.S. budget. These payments are not included in this table because, as subsidies, they do not fall into any of the three expenditure categories in the table.
