Amtrak: Background and Bibliography
Novinka Books, 2002/02/01 - 73 ページ
Since its creation in 1970, Amtrak has sought to relieve railroad companies of costly passenger operations while continuing US rail service. However, Amtrak has come under fire for its own inability to turn a profit, though passenger rail service is historically unprofitable. Congress has mandated that Amtrak show an ability to cover its own expenses, which the company has said it will do. As train travel becomes more important to the nation in the wake of the 11 September terrorist attacks, Amtrak's problems and viability are definite matters of national security. This book analyses the various issues surrounding Amtrak's past and future and includes a comprehensive bibliography.
