Comparative Fuel Intensity. The fuel intensity of alternative modes of intercity passenger travel is contained in Table 1. 3 As can be seen from the numbers there, intercity buses use less than 40% of the energy of Amtrak (measured in Btu 4) per bile trips longer than 75 miles are about as energy efficient as travel by Amtrak, and the average trip length on Amtrak .

Amtrak provides intercity passenger rail services to more than destinations in 46 states on a 22,mile route system. Amtrak recognizes that greenhouse gas reduction is a multi-dimensional concern, and encourages passengers to take practical steps to reduce carbon emissions where possible.
High-speed rail (HSR) is a rising industry in China and its development will be accelerated in the future. An empirical research is conducted to analyze passengers' travel behavior and selection preference factors before and after the completion of Beijing-Tianjin intercity HSR using fuzzy clustering model. Rail Passengers Mathews’ Talks to Industry Leaders About Importance of Intercity Rail to Reduce Pollution, Improve Energy Efficiency. The Rail Passengers Association’s Jim Mathews spoke before a crowd of industry leaders about how intercity passenger trains can be used to battle climate change at the American Public Transportation Association’s High-Speed Rail Policy Forum this week.

(a) data are for Passenger Cars and Other 2-axle, 4-tire vehicles, respectively. Electric trains were also studied and proved from an energy intensity viewpoint. A comprehensive study in the subject area of electric trains was represented.
A comparative analysis of the 'EI' values of the intercity passenger transportation modes was also presented. Energy intensity values of several train-consists were provided in a tabular Author: R. Mittal.
TRB’s National Cooperative Rail Research Program (NCRRP) Report 6: Guidebook for Intercity Passenger Rail Service and Development presents the resources, strategies, analytical tools, and techniques to support all phases of planning and decision making in the development of intercity passenger rail service at state, regional, or multistate levels.
The new category Light duty vehicle, short wheel base replaces the old category Passenger car and includes passenger cars, light trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles with a wheelbase (WB) equal to or less than inches.
All forms of rail achieve relatively high values because of high ridership, proportionally low drag, and high electrification rates. Airlines are an increasingly efficient form of transport as more passengers are fit onto planes and ticketing software fills most planes to capacity.
Energy Intensity Indicators: Transportation Energy Consumption. Updated Comparison of Energy Use & Emissions from Different Transportation Modes M.J. Bradley & Associates April 2 in mixed traffic on city streets.
The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means. The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy.
Inter-city rail services are express passenger train services that cover longer distances than commuter or regional trains. There is no precise definition of inter-city rail; its meaning may vary from country to country.
Most broadly, it can include any rail services that are neither short-distance commuter rail trains within one city area, nor slow regional rail trains calling at all.
Although the potential energy intensity of the passenger rail services clustered around Btu/seat-mile, the energy intensity per passenger-mile ranged from just under 1, Btu to just under 2, Btu, depending on the assumed load factor (Figure S-1).

Energy Information Administration (EIA) Monthly Energy Review, February This chart shows average. “The last set of numbers I saw was grams of CO2 per passenger mile for a typical intercity passenger rail system, versus [grams] for flying—so we’re already doing pretty well. But if you could take diesel out of the equation now you’re really starting to look at genuine energy intensity savings on a per passenger mile basis.
This paper is a critical review of research on long-distance passenger rail energy consumption that examines the factors that affect the energy intensity of rail, the comparative energy intensity of alternative modes (auto, air and bus), and the sources of discrepancies between different published energy intensity figures.
The ambiguities underlying those discrepancies point to a fundamental. Among various passenger services—that is, intercity, urban, and rural services—intercity passenger transport exhibits the greatest modal shifts, mainly because (i) it has the highest average travel speed, (ii) relatively low capital cost [$/(pkm/y)], and (iii) the energy intensity of airplanes is much higher than other modes, all of which.
TRB’s National Cooperative Rail Research Program (NCRRP) Report 3: Comparison of Passenger Rail Energy Consumption with Competing Modes provides tools that can be used to compare energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of intercity and commuter passenger rail with those of competing travel modes along a designated travel corridor.
Based on simulations of the transports of a typically formed Chinese intercity passenger train hauled respectively by major types of the locomotives on a certain railway line in China, this research analyzes the changes of the traction energy cost intensity and passenger transport efficiency of the train with varying its passenger capacity utilization rate and target speed.
The second chapter is a critical examination of the concept of energy intensty and the use of rail's purported energy intensity advantage over other transport modes as a basis for projecting increased long-distance passenger rail travel. The final chapter presents a systems dynamics simulation of potential futures for intercity passenger rail.

(The 10 projects were budgeted for a total of almost $29 million.) For example, Amtrak used TRA funds to carry out environmental remediation efforts at its Beech Grove maintenance facility in Indiana.
The Beech Grove facility is primarily used to maintain equipment in intercity passenger rail.
