Government Shutdown and Amtrak

Postby adamj023 » Sat Jan 20, 2018 10:25 am

Will the government shutdown have any affect on Amtrak? Transportation is included in government cuts during the shutdown apparently but only a small percentage I believe.

My recollection from last time, since Amtrak has a source of revenue and are a quasi-governmental agency, they can keep running, "for now" but eventually it'll catch up to them if this thing lasts long enough.

Does Amtrak receive it's subsidy all at once or say monthly? Hard to tell what is going on, how has Amtrak been funded through these "continuing resolutions?"
