Public transit is as much a part of the nation's infrastructure as highways, sanitation systems and other civil needs. Once in a while I hear, as background noise, references to upgrading our country’s infrastructure. The economy’s chaotic credit system is getting all the attention and billions of dollars are being made available to prop it up.

Public transit and infrastructure in general, missed the largesse of funds that apparently do exist. Of course, I’m being naïve, but what is certain now is that our approach for asking Congress for funds should be a lot different from now on.

Until next time,
