I want to travel 400 miles to pick up an $850 car on a weekend soon.
Option 1. Fly there: $400 for a one way plane ticket and 1 transfer, travel time 3 hours.
Option 2. Rail there: $200 for a one way train ticket to closets station and 2 transfers, travel time 14 hours and still need transport 40 miles to next town.
Option 3. Bus there: $50 for a one way bus ticket that for some reason does not run to the city I need on weekends, travel time 15 hours.
