Chris Brogan wrote a blog post titled, “11 Reasons to Take the Train,” and I just had to share it with you here.
I feel the same way as Chris, but more so about commuter trains and subways. There’s nothing like sitting back and watching the seasons change as I take the 1 hour trip from my town to NYC. Amtrak, in my experience, is slow and sometimes late, and it can make for a long, long trip.
I have taken Amtrak a few times from Trenton to Pittsburgh. The price couldn’t be beat – $45 round trip, but it did take about 8-9 hours to arrive at my destination!
Is speed or the ability to unplug more important to me? Honestly, I don’t know. It really depends on how I am feeling and what the purpose of my trip is. Vacations, unplugging is important, but if it is business, speed is most important!
What say you?
