    that if I have to get to Southern California, that Amtrak can get me there for less money and only slightly more time, more conveniently, than the combination of airport shuttles plus airports.

    In part, this is because my destinations are close to Amtrak stations.

    Plus, the seats are more comfortable, I can go to the bathroom whenever I want, and I can buy ice cream at the snack bar. :-)

    In fact, the cost of my Amtrak ticket is about the same as the cost of the airport shuttles alone.

    I should add that the trains are usually pretty full.
