Except you are completely ignoring the fact that Ann Arbor has twice the daily boardings that Detroit has, and that Ann Arbor is the third most popular destination from Detroit (and from Pontiac), suggesting that those passengers to Ann Arbor from points east of Ann Arbor are using seats that would otherwise be empty east of Ann Arbor. Are you suggesting that running a train with empty seats for 1/5 of its route is better than running a train with occupied seats over that portion?

It's 38 miles from Detroit to Ann Arbor by rail and 61 miles from Pontiac to Ann Arbor by rail (and 43 miles by car, so I don't know where the complaint about 20 mile trips comes from other than a complete disregard for numbers or facts).
