  • We serve the United States of America, its people and its guests.
  • Our job is to connect the communities and economies that comprise our nation.
  • We are not just a railroad; we are a company that moves people.
  • Amtrak responds to the market – as a business we must offer services that are in-demand and for which customers are willing to pay.
