How can Wilmington be an ‘Amtrak served community’ when no Amtrak trains stop here?

Q. I see signs that say Wilmington is an “Amtrak served community.” How is that possible when no Amtrak trains stop here?

A. While no Amtrak train serves Wilmington, the city is served by a Thurway bus service that connects passengers here to the station in Wilson.

NOTE: This answer has been corrected, thanks to a sharp-eyed reader. The answer originally gave an incorrect destination for the bus.

    Actually, I am told the bus goes to Wilson, Not Raleigh.
