Maybe Amtrak had an operating loss because it doesn't get the billions in subsidies that go to highway construction and maintenance.


I think Zipcar is fantastic. A city-dweller friend of mine takes advantage of their service all the time.

As for trains, with ridership up, why is it that Amtrak is costing the taxpayers more than $1 billion a year? Amtrak in 2008 had an operating loss on $465 million!!!
