    Anonymous rumor/leak regarding new bank for credit card

    My annual fee hit two months ago. The notice you got was the same notice I got, Just different dates of course. I paid the fee. I'm beating the crap out of the card to earn every possible point up until the end.

    Piedmonts and Carolinian used by commuters

    I have never met anybody using it as a daily commuter. However I know a guy that took a Piedmont every Sunday from Charlotte to Raleigh, and return home on Thursdays or Friday. His employer was eating all the expenses.

    Crescent schedule performance

    Only if they had a interest in passenger rail. I've struck up conversations with riders who live in Atlanta. Passenger rail advocacy or simply fighting for better doesn't seem to click for some. Many have told me they are simply happy to have a cheap option, other than Greyhound, since they...

    Anonymous rumor/leak regarding new bank for credit card

    I will keep using my AGR card to earn as many points as possible until the end date comes. When that happens, I will pivot from there.

    Comparison of Amtrak "Never Again" with "Never Again" on other transportation

    I've heard "never again" on just about every mode of transportation there is. We are those types that always plan for worse case scenarios. So when things happen, we are much more adept at taking things with a grain of salt. The one time I truly felt bad for a fellow passenger, was during a...

    Effect of rising gas prices on Amtrak ridership in summer of '22

    I saw $4.18 for regular here in Charlotte yesterday. Regardless of fuel prices, we are riding the train anyway for most of our vacation travels.
