Buses will be primarily used to get people to a train station.
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).
