Train, in the United States, has long been the primary means of transportation.
While Amtrak’s fleet of 24 passenger trains has grown in size and reach, many passengers still rely on public transit.
The latest data from the U.S. Department of Transportation shows that the nation’s train traffic has grown to a record level of 13.7 billion trips.
That is almost 1 billion more trips than last year.
The number of Amtrak trains is still the smallest of any major transportation network in the world.
But that is changing.
In 2015, the agency said that trains made up 1.3% of the nation, but that number is now at nearly 7% and rising.
This week, Amtrak unveiled a new rail modernization plan that aims to cut rail traffic by as much as 40% in the next decade.
Amtrak’s CEO, Thomas H. Prendergast, has repeatedly said that the agency wants to reduce the number of cars on the tracks and move trains as close to home as possible.
This new data shows that trains are already moving closer to homes and businesses, with trains crossing the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates in 2017.
That’s because the number is actually dropping.
Amtrak trains are still making up less than 1% of rail traffic in the U
