Metropolitan Areas Served by Amtrak

Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) Served by Amtrak

These tables display cities (metropolitan statistical areas) Amtrak serves. In the main table, the first column to the right of city area lists population; the second column lists cities served by Amtrak; third shows cities directly served by Amtrak trains. The fourth column shows cities that were formerly served by Amtrak trains in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

For classification purposes, cities within 30 miles of an Amtrak station are considered having Amtrak service. This article, published in Rail Travel News, provides further explanation on the data.
