|Year||Revenue per RPM|
KEY: RPM = revenue passenger-mile.
NOTES: Amtrak data are not available prior to 1993. Revenue includes revenue from concessions and other passenger services in addition to passenger fares. Revenue passenger-miles is the number of revenue passengers multiplied by the number of miles traveled by each passenger.
Current dollar amounts were adjusted to eliminate the effects of inflation over time. Amtrak revenue data were adjusted for inflation using the intercity rail deflator from the Bureau of Economic Analysis' Chain-Type Quantity and Price Indexes for Personal Consumption Expenditures.
