So for lines with colleges: Friday and Sunday service. I can tell you, though, that places that have a national draw, such as Notre Dame, do not empty out such that a state university might.

But do they generate enough traffic on a daily basis to target servicing just them?
Do you run a daily train service all seven days a week when there are only passengers on mostly two days?

That's the real question, not whether any of them will go every week.Agreed, and I think the answer is yes. Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun probably enough to fill a coach.
