Riding the rails to/from college


Below is a list of college cities and towns and their fiscal year 2013 AMTRAK ridership data. Very large central cities with a 2010 Census population exceeding 500,000 (like New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Los Angeles, Fort Worth, Austin, Indianapolis, Dallas, Denver, Albuquerque, Seattle, etc.) with major universities were not included in the this since their student populations represent a significantly smaller proportion of the community’s total population and intercity transportation ridership.
