About Amtrak, History and Headquarters Information
Amtrak is a passenger railroad service provider. It was founded in 1971. The headquarters is located in Washington DC. Though it received state and federal subsidies, it remained a profit – organisation.
The company serves more than 500 destinations in 46 states. It also serves 3 Canadian provinces. Everyday the company covers more than 21, 400 miles with more than 300 trains. They have adopted all new technologies including high speed trains. The company faced its down track in 1970s. This was mainly because many routes were made freight only.
The company launched the high-speed Acela Express in 2000. A big controversy was created by the company for the President Bush’s policy to spin off partial parts to state ownership. It was during this time the company faced insolvency problems.
Later in 2011, the company expanded its high-speed rail corridor. By law the company operates national route system. In 18 states, it serves the public through partnerships. The company also operates commuter services along with inter city services.
