Key Findings
The passenger rail sector consists of all passenger transport by 'heavy rail' services, including international, inter-city, regional, and suburban trains ("Commuter trains" in US terminology are included). However, light rail, tram/streetcar, Metro/Subway, and similar trains are not included. Sector volumes are given in passenger-kilometers (PKM) and international traffic is counted in the country of origin. Sector values in the report consist of revenues generated by operating companies through ticket sales, and so exclude state subsidies. All currency conversions used in the creation of the report have been calculated using constant 2015 annual average exchange rates.

The US passenger rail sector had total revenues of $25.9bn in 2015, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% between 2011 and 2015.

Sector consumption volume increased with a CAGR of 2.7% between 2011-2015, to reach a total of 63.2 billion PKM in 2015.

Amtrak is making significant 'billion dollar' investments in the US rail infrastructure. This is particularly being done to accommodate the inclusion of high speed trains into the US passenger rail sector.
