NOTES: Amtrak officially began service in May 1971. Amtrak serves more than 500 stations in 46 states and operates over a network of more than 22,000 track miles. Ridership is highly seasonal, with July and August being very high ridership months. In 2000, Amtrak introduced a high-speed rail service in the northeast United States, which helped increase ridership.
