September FY07 Ridership & Ticket Revenues Actuals

  • Systemwide ticket revenues for September FY07 were $124.4 million (+10% vs last year and +4% vs Budget) on the strength of the NEC. Total ridership in September was 2.1 million trips (+8% vs last year and +4% vs Budget);
  • Acela ticket revenues in September were +18% vs FY06 and +14% vs Budget. Ridership was +12% vs FY06 and +7% vs Budget. Acela continues to benefit from faster run-times, more northend departures, improved OTP, and poor air competition…
  • Regional ridership was +5% vs last year and +2% vs Budget. Regional ticket revenues were +9% vs last year and +8% vs Budget. Despite increased competition from some low-cost airlines (jetBlue, Southwest), Regionals continue to grow based on 1) a good service/value proposition; 2) diverted car trips; and 3) diverted air trips from legacy carriers;
  • September 07 long distance ticket revenues were +4% vs FY06 and -1% vs Budget. Ridership and ticket revenues on most long distance trains exceeded FY06 levels; 
  • Ridership on other corridor trains was +11% vs FY06 and +1% vs Budget. Ticket revenues were +10% vs FY06, but -6% vs Budget. Poor on-time performance – evidenced by weak CSI scores – combined with higher Amtrak fares and declining gas prices may be limiting growth opportunities.

FY07 Summary

  • Amtrak: Total ridership was +6% vs last year and nearly +3% vs Budget. Ticket revenues were +11% vs last year, and +4% (+$54.9 million) vs Budget due primarily to Acela. Other corridor trains grew vs FY06, but fell short of Budget;
  • Acela: Ridership and ticket revenues are very strong -- far ahead of last year and Budget due to the combined benefits of an improved service (faster by 5 minutes on the southend, improved OTP, and more northend service frequency) and increasingly poor air competition;
  • Regional: Ticket revenues were +7% vs last year and 2% favorable to Budget. Ridership was +1% vs year ago and +3% vs Budget;
  • Long Distance: Ridership and ticket revenues ended favorable vs Budget and year ago due to fare increases in Fall FY07 as well as deferral of most planned LD sleeper equipment reductions. Long Distance OTP ran 12 points higher FY07 vs FY06, resulting in higher CSI scores among customers;
  • Other Corridors: Ridership and ticket revenues in FY07 finished ahead of last year due in part to additional trains in the east (Keystones), the mid-west (all 3 Illinois routes), and the west (Capitols and Cascades), although most other corridors (the ones w/o service expansions) were also favorable vs FY06. Ridership performance vs FY07 Budget was unfavorable by about 1%. OTP remains an issue on many corridors.
