Amtrak Has Best Month Ever For Ticket Revenue

Published on : Thursday, December 14, 2017

AmtrakAmtrak achieved record revenue in November, reaching $204.7 million in system-wide adjusted ticket revenue, the best month in the company’s history.

 

Thanksgiving continued to be the busiest week of the year for Amtrak, with a record 777,897 riders taking the train to visit friends and family during Thanksgiving week, generating $61 million in gross ticket revenue.

 

“More customers are choosing Amtrak as it is simply the smarter way to travel. We look forward to providing the Amtrak experience to more customers over the December holidays,” said Amtrak Co-CEO Wick Moorman.

 

Amtrak encourages customers to book tickets early, before trains sell out, as it expects December will be equally as popular. Customers can save up to 25 percent on tickets, as 7-day and 14-day advance purchase saver fares are still available.

 

Amtrak customers have the benefit of free Wi-Fi on most trains, plenty of legroom and no middle seat, while avoiding highway congestion, potentially bad weather and crowded airports. Additionally, some customers may travel in newly-refreshed train cars as Amtrak is investing in a nearly $17 million refresh of its train interiors, including new seat cushions, carpeting, curtains and refreshed restrooms to provide a more modern, comfortable experience onboard. Customers can also bring small cats and dogs on many trains coast-to-coast.
