Getting There: Transportation in Connecticut with Jim Cameron
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
Getting "there," whether to work or school, is a daily hassle for millions of Connecticut residents. Whether by road or rail, finding dependable, affordable transportation in our state is a major problem.
In his upcoming talk, Cameron will recount his more memorable stories, everything from the woes of Metro-North to spending a day with a CT State Trooper on I-95, from nostalgia for Connecticut's transportation past to technological dreams for the high-speed future.
Among the topics to be explored: Should we have tolls on our major highways? What can be done to fix Metro-North? Why aren't the speed limits enforced on our interstates? Will we raise the gasoline tax? Will the northeast ever have truly high-speed rail?
Jim Cameron served 19 years on the Metro-North Commuter Council, four as its Chairman. In 2015 he formed a new advocacy organization, The Commuter Action Group. His popular weekly newspaper column "Getting There" appears in the five Hearst CT media dailies.
