So the buses never move?

I've made a number of trips, to visit relatives, between California and Washington by bus, mainly because the rail service in the U.S. was so dismal during the 1970's. Except for the limited room available for movement, I had no complaints. I did ride AMTRAK once but haven't had cause to do that again.

Bus travel was decent in the 70s but got a lot worse in the 80s after one guy bought out both Greyhound and Trailways, merged them, and made the result a low-end product. I gave up on it in the early 90s. I understand it's gotten better since then, though.

Long-range bus travel... no, thanks. The only thing a bus is good for is taking you to the nearest train station.
