Bus schedule a little off

I need to get from Grass Valley to San Francisco Airport. The only available public transportation option is Amtrak. There are five daily trains that depart from Auburn. Gold Country Stage has buses that terminate at the Auburn Amtrak station. Convenient, right? Except, guess what – four of the buses arrive 10 minutes after the train departs! How pathetic is that?

Much has been written lately about how Gold Country stage routinely loses money. I’m not sure that changing their schedule to coincide with Amtrak would turn around the bottom line – but it couldn’t hurt. Otherwise, what’s the point of even having a bus to the Amtrak station?
