RAIL PASSENGER STATISTICS IN THE NORTHEAST CORRIDOR 1974-75

The monthly data for the years 1974 and 1975 reflect different aspects of train ridership on the Northeast Corridor. In 1974 patronage was substantially higher than it was in 1973 due to the fear that there would be no gasoline available when needed during an intercity automobile trip. In 1975 this fear had subsided, and although generally the number of passengers were higher than had been the case in 1973, the patronage figures were lower than the 1974 high.
