Ridership Of Amtrak's Acela Express Growing

In the Boston-Washington corridor, the ridership of Amtrak's Acela Express is steadily growing.

"Backed-up airport security lines, fear of flying, and the comforts of the new train are among the reasons given for the steadily growing number of business travelers trying the 15-month-old Acela service.The train, which serves Boston, New York and Washington, got a big boost after Sept. 11. And according to the best available records from Amtrak and the airlines, the advantage appears to be holding, with the shuttles yet to rebound fully from the terrorist attacks."
