I've never done either, but I've heard Greyhound really really really sucks.

Amtrak. Greyhound is like purgatory, times passes but very slowly. I've taken Amtrak from Chicago to SF and it was great. Ur in St. Louis right? Hit me up if u need a ride.
I wish I was the headlight on a northbound train.

Amtrak. When we don't drive somewhere we take amtrak. People are nice, the food has come a long way. Alcohol on board. The cheese and cracker snack tray is really good. The dining car has improved by leaps and bounds.
Please tell Governor Christie of NJ to open the records

Yeah, Amtrak. I never did cross country with either. Just short runs, but even then, trains beat the bus.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Agreed, train trumps bus, always...

I've done both. Amtrak, hands down. You still get that boxed in feeling eventually but you can still roam from car to car and it's easier to sleep. And yes, the booze is a plus.

Done plenty of long trips on both.

Amtrak by far, no comparison. Much better conditions, room to walk around, food and drinks, good socializing in the bar car, scenery much, much better than the highway.
Let us all look kindly on our neighbor.

It's unanimous, Amtrak by a long shot. I've been all over the US on both and there is no comparison
