You mention everything that's being done to improve sustainability but you don't mention the very unsustainable change to the dining car. A few years ago you switched from using real dishes and glasses that can be washed and reused hundreds of times... to single use plastic.

To make matters worse these plastic plates, bowls and cups are thrown in the trash instead of being recycled. No matter how green the plastic cups are (I know they are made from a plant-based material that is compostable in limited circumstances)... they will never be as "green" and sustainable as real glass.

I hope this is what is addressed in your next blog post on sustainability.

@Amtrak As a part of the Amtrak America rebranding will all of the long distance cars (including the Superliners) eventually utilize the Phase III striping?

Just don't forget to bring your shampoo and conditioner... because inexplicably Amtrak only provides these basic amenities on a few routes.

Every hotel I've stayed at across the nation provides shampoo and conditioner... but Amtrak only provides it if you are traveling on a route with "enhanced" services. Forget the fact that the rooms cost about the same... no matter which route you're on.
