the train is expensive and slow. Greyhound is a cattle car. the only bus now (besides Greyhound and one gamblers bus) is Amtrak Thruway (threw-away). It has 3 or 4 a day, but makes All The Stops (5 before Sacramento)-about 3 hours plus.Amtrak won't schedule an express or two, it's all ocals for foothills folks to catch the choo-choo. The only advantage is if U have Amtrak Rewards and schedule with a train (connect in Roseville, davis, Sacramento, etc.)you get "points". The downside is the miserable scheduling of the trains, unless U are going to the Bay Area, then there is the Capitol Corridor. I hope this new bus is safe and reliable, and that not too many zoned-out folks ride it.
