“Getting There: Connecticut’s Transportation Crisis”
“Trains, Taxes and Tolls”
Long-time commuter advocate and newspaper commentator JIM CAMERON offers a lively presentation and Q&A on Connecticut’s transportation crisis:
- Our crowded highways falling into a state of disrepair
- Hundreds of bridges considered “deficient”
- Metro-North trains running slower while fares increase
How did our state go from “first to worst” in transportation? And what does our future hold?
Cameron explores the options in an engaging, thought-provoking workshop with plenty of time to hear your ideas and answer your questions. Cameron has been called “the transportation guru” having spent over 25 years studying and reporting on the issue.
