Amtrak bus: don't think so

When a successful commute depends on both a phone company and public transportation, something just has to go wrong.

I didn’t get to try my new Verizon EVDO service today on my commute as I had hoped. Track work (details here) on the Capital Corridor line prevented me from taking the Amtrak train, though they are offering a “bus bridge.” I’ve taken plenty of public transportation in my day, but I wasn’t feeling too excited about taking a temporary Amtrak bus (would you take a temporary Greyhound train? Didn’t think so.)

I will grant Verizon one thing — I have never been so excited about the prospect of waiting for the train in my life. I just can’t wait for my first two-hour delay!
