Joseph Vranich has produced the first insightful analysis of the deficit-ridden Amtrak system since the passage of major reform legislation in 1997, the Amtrak Reform and Accountability Act. His review comes as Amtrak is seeking record federal subsidies while continuing to resist meaningful reforms.

The book addresses myths and fallacies about Amtrak, exposing how the railroad is not as essential to mobility as it claims. For example, each of the nation's top sixteen airports serves more travelers every day than does Amtrak's entire national system.

About the Author:

Joseph Vranich has served as a public affairs spokesman for Amtrak and as president of the High Speed Rail Association.

Review:

Mr. Vranich made the conversion from spokesman to scourge, arguing in books titled 'Derailed' and 'End of the Line' that train service would never improve as long as Amtrak had a monopoly on it. . . . Amtrak officials no longer pretend that Acela is the future―they've vowed not to buy any more of the trains―but they insist that they still know the solution to passengers' woes: more money from Washington. Last week, though, the Bush administration adopted Mr. Vranich's idea of giving the federal money to someone other than the folks who brought us the Acela. (John Tierney The New York Times)
