When I was pursuing Facebook yesterday I saw someone post this interesting link to a new company in California. There is now a new way to go from SFO to LAX via the overnight bus. Instead of sitting in a seat the passengers lay down in something like a open section from the Pullman Days. I find it an interesting little operation. And if it works it proves there is a market for an overnight train between the two points as well. The prices seem fairly reasonable all things considered. And it looks like a nice bus. From a business stand point the 28 bunk bus brings in 1820 a run, and the 12 bunk bus brings in 1680. So over the year the 12 bunk bus brings in minus expenses 613,200. And the 28 bunk bus brings in 664,300. Bringing the company to 1,277,500 in income before paying drivers, gas, maintenance, staff, and other costs. I'm not convinced its viable to run it. But if there is a market then it might do well. I'll post in Amtrak's Future about a night train on the route.
