An Amtrak ticket to Philadelphia cost $3.20 to $3,700 last year.
A trip from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore would run you $3.,600, according to Amtrak data.
Traveling with Amtrak was supposed to be cheaper this year, but the Northeast Corridor has been hit hard by the financial crisis, which has reduced ridership and left the nation with the lowest share of commuters nationwide.
Some of the biggest declines have occurred in Washington, New York and Boston.
On Thursday, the Amtrak service between Washington, Washington, and Philadelphia was suspended, and Amtrak announced that it had canceled all trips between the two cities.
A recent analysis by The Wall Street Journal shows that Amtrak’s revenue fell by $2.5 billion to $24.4 billion this year.
It is the first time that Amtrak has lost money since the financial crash.
The Northeast Corridor lost more than $3 billion this fiscal year.
In addition, Amtrak’s budget is $2 billion below what it was in 2008.
Amtrak says that it plans to invest $3-4 billion in infrastructure to improve the network and get people back on the train.
