States Get Golden Opportunity to Cut Unprofitable Amtrak Lines

    You give to much credit to Amtrak’s NE regional service. The Hartford to NY runs are twice as expensive and usually slower (or no faster) than bus service running almost hourly. The WSJ reported last year that Bolt and Megabus were eating into Amtraks’ regular commuter clients from Philly to NYC or DC.

    A small bar car does not compensate for slow, expensive service

    Total outrage, I just emailed my Texas state rep and senator. We shouldn’t be blowing $2 million a year and nearly $23.80 a ticket on Amtrak.

    Any other Texans reading this should do the same: http://www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/mnuAddress.aspx
