Buses will be primarily used to get people to a train station.6a00d8345276b569e201a5118b6213970c resized 600

The inter-city bus routes of today will quickly fade as soon as train service is provided. 

-Buses cannot go as fast as trains. They go 65 mph, trains go over 100 mph.

-Buses cannot provide as many amenities as trains.

-Highways will be deteriorating.

-Taxpayers will not want to pay 50 percent of the cost of bus transportation (highway infrastructure, no increase in gas tax).

This post was written by William A. Draves, who authored "Nine Shift: Work, Life, and Education in the 21st Century" with Julie Coates. Their latest book is "Pedagogy of the 21st Century." This post originally appeared on the Nine Shift blog.
