"Obama boosts Amtrak funding; Northeast to get half of $1.3 billion grant" by Susan Milligan, Globe Staff | March 14, 2009

WASHINGTON - .... All national train systems receive financial help from the government, and that air travel and highways receive much higher subsidies - covering road construction and airport maintenance, for instance."
