NOTES: Short distance is less than 400 miles; long distance is > 400 miles. As of 2001, Amtrak no longer reports short- and long-haul data separately.
1 Includes equipment malfunctions, train servicing in stations, and passenger-related delays.
2 Includes delays for track repairs/track conditions, freight train interference, and signal delays.
3 Includes passenger train interference, waiting for connections, running time, weather-related delays, and miscellaneous.
4 Amtrak changed its method for reporting delays in 2000. Therefore, data after 1999 are not comparable to previous years and are not used in this figure.
