Reply to "Amtrak's Plans to Extend Rail Service Across the Country"

CV-19 and Zoom showed us that maybe a lot of trips are not essential, and should not be taken, or combined.

Maybe that should be the push.  It would be greener both from a money as well as eco.

The post-Covid boom in air traffic and auto traffic shows that Americans are taking a lot of trips, essential or not. Unfortunately, at least for now, it appears Americans are going to take their trips - that's the reality. Covid is waining in importance for many, and Zoom will stop some traffic, but not enough to put a dent in travel.

But if automobile and airline (big polluters) traffic can be reduced by a relatively clean train travel alternative, that would be beneficial.
