That is an *enormous* number of new agents to be hired. Likely in the hundreds.I believe it only applies to Long Distance and NEC service line stations and only if the station has a building. If the station has a commuter rail agency employee that can sell Amtrak tickets that also counts. At stations providing only state supported service that’s between Amtrak and said state. Still - will probably result in them having to staff some stations that haven’t had them in a while.
Here's is a preliminary sample from Indiana:
1. South Bend (SOB)
2. Elkhart (EKH)
3. Waterloo (WTI)
I can't even begin to imagine how long it has been since South Bend was a staffed station ... WOW.
