Amtrak to cut back on its longer routes because of virus

Published Wed Jun 17 2020 19:51:34 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Amtrak will cut service later this year on most of its long-distance routes nationwide to three times a week instead of the current daily service because ridership has fallen significantly during the coronavirus pandemic. Amtrak spokeswoman Kimberly Woods said Wednesday that the cuts will take effect Oct. 1 and remain in place until at least the summer of 2021, but daily service could be restored if demand improves along its long-distance routes. Jim Mathews, president and chief executive of the Rail Passengers Association advocacy group, said these cuts are short-sighted and will hurt long-term demand for these routes.
