The public transportation industry is awakening to a new outlook on their future role in transit. Instead of making a wish list of capital plans, dreams are becoming realities. Transit is being urged to speed up plans for expanding facilities and buying new buses and equipment to meet the new growing demand.

The one void in all this new growth is that none of the stimulus monies can be used for operations. With each bit of growth, overhead grows as well. When agencies are on a fixed income, it’s going to take creative skill to deal with the demands of internal growth.

Until next time,
