Illinois Central Presents Comparative
Costs of Passenger Fares
Americans pay more for nearly everything they buy than do Europeans. Thei
are able to pay more because their wages are relatively higher. There is one not
able exception, however-passenger transportation charges in this country are sub
stantially lower.
Although there has been a recent increase in American passenger fares, Ameri
cans still pay less for traveling accommodations than Europeans. The following
is a comparison between passenger fares charged in the United States, the points be
ing on the Illinois Central System, and fares paid by European traveling similar

All American fares given in the table include a war tax of 8 per cent. The
Americau sleeping-car fares are for lower berths.
'Fhe American custom of handling free of charge, as much baggage as the ordi
nary passenger carries is unknown abroad. In addition, baggage rates in Europa
are much higher than in the United States. This condition should be considered
in comparing passenger fares in the various countries.
In the United States the railroads collect a surcharge on sleeping-car fares,
which is included in the above table. 'his surcharge helps to meet the cost of
hauling the heavier cars required, in which fewer passengers are carried.
During 1919 the Illinois Central hauled 1 % gross tons of weight for each coach
passenger carried, and 4.4 gross tons of weight for each sleeping-car passenger
carried. Not to collect the surcharge, therefore, would obviously be a discrimina
tion against the coach passenger, and an injustice to the railroad.
The costs of facilities for rendering pass-nger service have increased greatly. The
average passenger coach cost $12,400 in 1914; it now costs $30,300, an increase of
144 per cent. The average passenger locomotive cost $20,000 in 1914; it now
costs $65,000, an increase of 225 per cent. There have been heavy increases in
the costs of wages, fuel and other material.
These are some of the reasons why passenger fares are necessarily higher now
than they were in former years.
Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited.
