The Amtrak journey is about more than us. It's about you. Thanks to you, we've reached a record of 31.6 million riders this year and we helped communities grow and prosper while continuing to strengthen American rail travel.
Amtrak employees and CEO Joe Boardman would like to take a moment to thank you themselves.
The 31.6 million milestone averages out to around 85,000 daily passengers aboard more than 300 Amtrak trains. These trains serve more than 500 destinations in 46 states, as well as three Canadian provinces. But there's no number to express our gratitude for the riders that make it happen.
For your part in helping Amtrak advance America's economy through rail travel, and for so much more, we thank you.
We know that every rider has a story and in celebration of record ridership we want to hear yours. Share your story with us at http://bit.ly/14T8NGO for a chance to win one of 30 $100 travel vouchers and the chance to win an Amtrak Vacation package for two.
