Stimulus Money Will Revamp Amtrak

Another form of transportation is getting a boost from the economic stimulus plan.

Amtrak is set to receive $1.3 billion. The award was unveiled by Vice President Joe Biden Friday.

We spoke with a representative from Amtrak who says most of the money will go toward new rail cars and upgrading railways.

There are more than 28 million passengers on Amtrak trains each year.
