I took an Amtrak from NY to NC back in 94'. The train went through Baltimore and I remember seeing these crumbling houses THEN! No one should have to live like that! Rep Cummings, stop virtue signaling, do your job and help your district!
Public/mass transit only Toledo to Asheville, NC and back to Gambier last March. Hard and only possible because my job is flexible and I like the challenge. Neither true for most people. Amtrak>Uber>Greyhound>City Bus>Asheville>Greyhound>Amtrak>Greyhound>GoBus>Gambier
I do know they do a surprisingly good job considering the region of funding intercity transit with the NC funded Amtrak lines and I believe a couple of the coastal Greyhound routes are NC funded too. It'll be interesting to see if anything ever comes of the idea
