Amtrak has released their ridership numbers for April, and the graphs speak for themselves.
San Joaquin missed hitting 100,000 for the first time by 609 riders.
Capitol Corridor exceeds 150,000 for the month
Pacific Surfliner has more than 250,000 riders a month
And how they stack up against each other.
And finally, how does Amtrak California compare to the rest of the system?
Very favorably. I thought nobody rode trains in California?

Hiawatha goes between Chicago and Milwaukee, not in MN.
Let's not forget LA's Metrolink commuter lines leading into surrounding counties, with 38,000+ riders on an average workday. Who says no one rides trains in California?
Thanks Steve. Minneapolis has a light rail line with the same name, so I confused the two.
