Amtrak To Drop $25,000 Ticket Price For Two Wheelchair Users After Complaints

Amtrak has rescinded its charge of $25,000 each for two wheelchair users and will charge them just the normal ticket price.

NPR reported on Friday that the ticket for a two-hour ride between Chicago and Bloomington-Normal, Ill., stations usually costs $16. Amtrak had based the higher price on adjustments to train cars.
