Hey guys I am booking transportation for my brother to go to NC to see a friend, since he doesn't have a driver's license (he gets out of prison next month). I first looked at Bus travel but he would have to switch buses 6 times between here and Wilmington NC and 2 of those times he would have over an hour layover wait time before boarding the next bus. A total of 23 hrs time from getting on the first bus here to arriving in Wilmington. Don't sound like an enjoyable trip to me. The cost of the bus ticket was $84. However I looked at an Amtrak train ticket and 1-1/2 hrs (total) trip time for $61, so that part is a no brainer. But since the nearest train station to Wilimington is in Fayatteville he would also have to catch a bus from there (about 90miles) to Wilimington. Anybody travel on a train lately, what's it like? Comfortable etc ? Opps read the train online page wrong, (guess that would have to be the bullet train the way I got it first LOL). Actually it's a one stop trip for the train then another 11 hrs to FayatteVille a total of 13-1/2 hrs. Still sounds better than the bus to me.
