Tens of millions of people ride some form of passenger railroad every year; for example, Amtrak carried more than 30 million passengers in 2011 and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system logged 22.3 million passenger trips that same year. Passenger railroads range from light rails (or metro rails) and subways in specific urban areas to Amtrak, which covers the United States.
Because most passenger railroads cover relatively small areas, they typically do not maintain the equipment and personnel to perform many railroad support tasks. Passenger railroads have recognized that it is more effective from a cost and performance basis to network with qualified railroad contractors like Hulcher Services for the maintenance of their railroad and facility properties.
