Starting this fall, Amtrak shuttle buses will come to Greenville to connect eastern North Carolina with high-speed passenger rail service nationwide, the federal train operator announced Monday.

The newly dedicated motor coach line, dubbed “Thruway Service,” will establish two eastern North Carolina routes, one connecting Greenville, New Bern, Havelock and Morehead City, and the other Goldsboro, Kinston, Jacksonville and Wilmington.

Both routes will take passengers to an Amtrak station in Wilson that serves the Palmetto train, a twice-daily rail line that stops at 20 stations between New York and Savannah, Ga. It also provides access to the Amtrak national network of more than 500 stations in 46 states, the District of Columbia and three Canadian provinces.

Hey fruitbasket, think Utility companies run this type

of business model? Think Gv Util lose $ billions a yr or more??? Right....I like electricity and I work to pay for what I use....


this is so dumb I cannot stand it


You're doing it wrong. All of it.


Yet ANOTHER waste of Amn worker taxpayer $$$.. Just this wk, report that Amtrak is losing $$$ billions annually. Food service the least profitable from EMPLOYEE THEFT??? Hamburgers selling for $9.50 actually cost $16.50, with labor costs included. Therefore, for every burger served, the US Gov't/Amtrak is losing $7...and that is a business model???? This service outlined above CANNOT be profitable and I for one shall let elected officials know...actually injustice to those of us working and paying taxes...

Over react much?

It's a wonder you even favor having electricity.
