In Response to RE: SHOULD RAIL BE SUBSIDIZED IN THE US YES/NO by nyadrn
I support continued subsidies for passenger rail in the US since other forms of transportation including air and roads are also subsidized. Passenger rail provides service to many small communities that lack good access to air travel. It is also a good alternative to air travel for shorter trips. The Blue Water route that runs through my home town had a 30% increase in passengers during the last three months which indicates Amtrak provides a desired service to the public. Trains usually are still running when planes are cancelled for weather issues. We saw a good example of this the past week.
