I’m (not) leaving on a Jet Plane

26Jan08

So I’m going to visit Prospective PhD School #1 in March. Its way too expensive to fly, ($500) and I really don’t want to drive the 9 hours by my self. The Brain can’t come with me, he’s got to work. So the question becomes, Amtrak or Megabus?

Amtrak comes to a little over $100 and MegaBus currently comes to about $50. now the obvious thing is MegaBus is cheaper, but I’ve never used them. All in all the travel time isn’t a lot different, but there’s something about trains that I love more than buses, and well, if I miss the Amtrak connection, they have people to help me. I’ll have to see what MegaBus says about combining routes and people.

PPS#1 still has to get back to me on Monday with itinerary for my campus visit, and what not , and I have to see if I can Amtrak to PPS#2.

So what would you do, o wise readers? Bus or train?
