NOTES: Amtrak serves more than 500 stations in 46 states and operates over a network of more than 21,000 track miles. Ridership is highly seasonal, July and August are the peak ridership months. In 2000, Amtrak introduced a high-speed rail service in the northeast U.S., which helped increase ridership.
