Biden announces $2.45B federal loan for next-generation Amtrak trains and stations
In a big leap forward for American railroad transportation, Amtrak is accepting a $2.45 billion loan from the federal government to improve its technology . The project will span over the next several years and include the addition of 28 next-generation high-speed trains, major upgrades to four major Northeastern stations, and tons of amenities to draw in more passengers. When Amtrak ’s new trains hit the tracks in 2021, travelers will have a high-tech transportation option unmatched by any other in the country.
