"The line had the biggest decline in ridership of the 22 lines in the rail company's western region in fiscal year 2003, which ended Sept. 30. It was the second largest decline in the nation. Nationwide, ridership increased 2.7 percent from 23.5 million riders to 24 million riders. The decline is leading Amtrak and state officials to consider eliminating the international part of the line, making Port Huron the starting and stopping point."
