The rail carrier says ridership was up 4.3 percent during the first half of fiscal 2010 with a record 13.6 million passengers. Amtrak says that's about 100,000 more than the 13.5 million the first half of fiscal 2008, when a record 28.7 million passengers rode its trains between October and March.

President and CEO Joseph Boardman cited an improving economy and high fuel prices as factors in ridership growth.
