I have been a big fan of Amtrak, and have not flown between Washington and New York since 9/11. (Confession: I will fly on this trip because it is much easier to get to LaGuardia than to Penn Station to get home from Queens.) But my last Amtrak trip was a disaster because of poor communications about a train delay. I could have traveled from the Alexandria, Virginia, station to Union Station in DC, and would have upgraded to Acela if I had known more details about delays and my options. In NYC, my partner is savvy about the bus and subway apps, and figuring out how to navigate the city. He is an inspiration to me in trying to figure out the options.
