Semiannual Report to Congress #66 (April 1, 2022 to September 30. 2022)

Report Description: 
I am pleased to submit the Amtrak Office of Inspector General (OIG) Semiannual Report to the United States Congress for the six months ending September 30, 2022, which is our independent and objective assessment of Amtrak’s programs and operations. Amtrak continues its post pandemic rebound with increased ridership and a historic national investment through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Consequently, Amtrak is now poised to access up to $66 billion to advance major capital improvement projects like replacing its aging trainsets, rebuilding deteriorating infrastructure, and potentially expanding its service throughout the country. Amtrak anticipates spending billions over the next two decades. In addition to the sprawling Gateway program on the Northeast corridor, plans are underway for replacing the Baltimore and Potomac Tunnel, purchasing new locomotives and Intercity Trainsets, and enhancing accessibility in its stations.
