It’s been impactful not only for the road trippers but for the average American commuter. Amtrak incorporated in 1971 and much of this decade was spent solidifying its brand and its place within American travel. Amtrak initially serviced 43 states (and Washington D.C.) with 21 routes. In the early ’70s, Amtrak established railway stations and expanded to Canada. The Amtrak was meant to dissuade car usage, especially when commuting. But it wasn’t until 1975, when Amtrak introduced a fleet of Pullman-Standard Company Superliner cars, that it was regarded as a long-distance travel option. The 235 new cars — which cost $313 million — featured overnight cabins, and dining and lounge cars.

But Dr. Satish Rao, a professor of medicine at Augusta University in Georgia who studies constipation, said that in his experience, it’s pretty common — affecting what he estimates as one in three people.

President Eisenhower felt great pressure from his constituents to improve the roadways, and he obliged in the ’50s, paving the way for smoother road trips and commutes. In 1935, the invention of the Douglas DC-3 changed the game — it was a commercial airliner that was larger, more comfortable, and faster than anything travelers had seen previously. Use of the Douglas DC-3 was picked up by Delta, TWA, American, and United. The ’30s was also the first decade that saw trans-Atlantic flights.
