Thank You for our Best Year Ever!

by julia.quinn / blog.amtrak.com

Thanks, Gracias, Merci! No matter how you say it, we owe a big “thank you” to our more than 31 million customers. You helped Amtrak achieve our best ridership year ever and sixth consecutive year serving more than 30 million customers!

In 2016, you rode from small towns to big cities, from economic centers to National Parks, and, of course, home to see your family and friends. With the friendliest baggage policy in the travel industry, free Wi-Fi for 90% of Amtrak customers, no “middle seats” and a nationwide network serving over 500 destinations, customers throughout the country continue to find Amtrak to be the smarter way to travel. It’s clear you are a nation on the move, and we’re proud you chose us to get you to your destinations.

While we handled the driving, you were busy snapping photos on Instagram and sharing your #AmtrakStories with friends and followers. You captured the beauty of the American landscape, our unique stations and a few selfies along the way. We want your help celebrating the memories you’ve made with us this year and the ones to come by sharing your #AmtrakStories. All #AmtrakStories shared have a chance to be featured!

It’s been a great year, we got you to your destination and you got us here, to another record year. We look forward to seeing you onboard our trains in the year to come. All aboard!
