About

 

The Rail Service Passenger Act created Amtrak in October 1970. Amtrak, the privately owned National Passenger Rail Corporation, began providing intercity passenger service on May 1, 1971. Though Amtrak is technically speaking a private company, the Federal government currently owns all its stock. Amtrak is the sole available source of intercity train travel as the only franchise operator. Amtrak intercity passenger service ridership is the indicator.

 

Amtrak services Florida with five long distance trains. These include the Silver Meteor, the Silver Star, the Silver Palmetto, the Sunset Limited, and the Auto Train. For detailed schedules and locations one can visit the Amtrak website at http://www.amtrak.com.
