Re: Trump's budget slashes Amtrak funding, phases out long-distance routes

When Amtrak routes have come off, Greyhound got ZERO of its passengers.

Because the government isn't subsidizing Greyhound.

It's cheaper to serve remote areas of the US with subsidized bus service than with subsidized train service. That is a fact, even though it isn't the only argument to be made for or against the continuation of long distance train service.
