The report displays 1969 rail passenger statistics for the New York-Boston and New York-Washington routes, with emphasis on a comparison of Metroliner and Turbotrain passengers with conventional train passengers. Statistics relative to passengers' origins and destinations, socio-economic characteristics, purposes of travels, frequency of travel, last-used mode of travel and opinions concerning the quality of train service are displayed. The socio-economic characteristics of Metroliner patrons and airline passengers within the Corridor are compared, with the results indicating that Metroliner riders are more similar to airline passengers than to users of conventional train service.
