Tonight the evening news was blanketed with stories of people stranded in airports across the country.
According to Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight blog (now at nytimes), with airline load factors at all-time highs of 82 percent, people won't be able to get a flight until after the new year.
Events like this massive snow storm show how limited our options are in the USA for public transportation.

side note: It would be great if Ohio had $400 million (a random amount) to begin implementation of passenger rail.
But money like that from the federal government would never be allocated.

here's a question:
Recently I heard there is now a Chinatown Bus providing cheap seats from Youngstown to New York City and back.
according to this site, there is a stop in Youngstown, right off Interstate 80.
Has anyone taken the China Bus?
Was it a pleasant experience?
How much was your ticket?
What time did you depart and arrive during both legs of the trip?
