China Sets Sights On Rail Record

EugeneK Re:Airlines (360 comments)

For trips less than 250 miles, it's just not worth the hassle of getting to a major rail hub, parking your car (or taking transit and transfering), waiting to board the train, arriving at your destination with no ground transport and having to rent a car, etc.. It's easier to just jump in your car and drive there. Cheaper, too. As another reply to your post pointed out, it depends where you live - if I live close to a major rail hub, and my destination is also close the destination hub, then I don't need to rent a car. Compare that to traveling from inside a city to an airport. You have to figure about an hour and $100 on each side.
