List of busiest Amtrak stations

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

30th Street Station in Philadelphia, Amtrak's third-busiest train station in the nation, July 2016

This is a list of the train stations with the highest Amtrak ridership the United States in the fiscal year 2023 (October 2022 to September 2023). Ridership is defined as the total number of boarding and alightings at a station.[1] Ridership figures since 2015 have been provided for comparative purposes. In the fiscal year 2020, ridership was down significantly across the board due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. These rankings exclude Amtrak-served train stations in Canada. Ridership numbers are for Amtrak only—commuter rail, subway, and other modes are not included.
