Travel Green with Amtrak
"As travelers, we all realize that we need to get from point A to point B, but we'd like be able to get to our destination without ruining the earth. The good news: we can balance our travel needs and mitigate our impact on the environment when we travel by rail. So leave your car at home, and let Amtrak get you where you need to go.

"More than just a convenient way to travel, Amtrak is also energy efficient. Traveling by rail contributes less per passenger mile to greenhouse gas emissions than either cars or airplanes.

Following is a brief excerpt from the "Amtrak ink".

    Volume 14, Issue 9, October 2009 To Get a Facelift
    New Web Site Will Enhance Customer Service, Generate Added Revenue

    In FY ’10, an updated will debut with a number of new features to make it even easier for customers to electronically book train tickets, increasing sales and adding more revenue to the bottom line. The new site’s share of ticketed sales is expected to increase to more than half of all ticket sales. “The is going to increase both long-distance and short distance business by offering customers a complete view of available seating and an array of pricing options,” said Kathleen Gordon, senior director, e-Commerce. An enhanced fare finder feature will consolidate all booking functionality — reservations, train status, schedule search and the “My Trip” section— into a single dynamic menu. The new site will show full-day availability that reflects an entire day of seating inventory instead of the current maximum of 10 options available for selection. With the new view, customers will see all seating options including First Class; the current site requires additional site navigation to view these upgrades. Other features will include a shopping cart for itemized purchases; an inventory alert icon that notifies customers when seating on a given departure is limited, thus prompting sales; the launch of travel insurance options to generate ancillary revenue; and a pricing matrix that will enable customers to select the lowest price and find the fastest train. Another significant feature is enhanced service alerts for individual trains . . . "
