WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. passenger railroad Amtrak said Monday it will boost passenger service on the east coast as it vows to double ridership by 2040.

The railroad is boosting Northeast Regional service between Boston and Washington by as much as 20% on weekdays and adding 1 million additional seats over the next year. Congress approved $66 billion for rail as part of the 2021 massive infrastructure bill, with $22 billion dedicated to Amtrak.
