Amtrak to Offer Digital Newspapers

Amtrak business and first class passengers on all Northeast Corridor and eastern route trains will have free unlimited access to The New York Times and The Washington Post digital newspapers via the free on-board Wi-Fi, Amtrak Connect. Starting as a pilot program, this amenity is offered in addition to the spacious seating and complimentary nonalcoholic drinks, at affordable price. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, this free access will help you stay connected to the latest business and stock news, or catch up on sports and entertainment news.

This is just another reason rail travel is the green way to go.  In addition to contributing less per passenger mile to greenhouse gas emissions, the switch to digital newspapers can save over 103,740 newspaper copies on an annual basis. Assuming each newspaper weighs at least 8 ounces, Amtrak can save over 25 tons of newspaper in one year!
