Amtrak ridership rebounds after Sandy
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, Amtrak's northeast corridor saw its second best year ever in fiscal 2013 with 11.4 million passengers, Amtrak said Monday.
Despite a slight .2% dip in ridership from the previous year, ticket revenue on the Boston-Washington northeast corridor increased 5.3% to $1.1 billion. That also includes riders and revenue from the Acela Express and special trains.
Amtrak's total ridership for fiscal 2013 set a record of 31.6 million passengers, pulling in $2.1 billion from ticket sales.
