How may I help to save Amtrak?
By being a customer and or by contacting your elected government officials by e-mail, snail mail or phone.
What do I say?
Suggest -Maintaining a strong viable national intercity rail system in the United States. Keeping Amtrak and the national system intact. You want Amtrak to stay in business and grow the business in all markets both long and short haul.  Money for more passenger trains, engines,sleepers, lounges diners, coaches. You do not want to see any long distance trains cut or employees lose their jobs.  Please include your name and home address in the e-mail or letter.
