News article: Senate Approves American Rescue Plan, $30.5B in Transit Relief

The bill is expected to return to the House for a vote and, should it pass, will then be sent to President Biden for a signature.

I love this guy Biden because he loves trains.  Already he is investing in Amtrak and other transport modes for the future and this package is designed to allow Amrak to survive and grow.  Sleepers coming back onto the California routes too.

Summary of the investment

Amtrak
  • $970 million for Northeast Corridor grants.
  • $730 million for National Network grants.
  • $285 million in lieu of commuter rail and state-supported route payments.
  • $166 million to restore service on long-distance routes and to recall and manage furloughed employees.

I am now keen to see what new routes we will see restored.
