2014 American Public Transportation Conference
At a time when gas prices are hovering just below 4 dollars a gallon, it might be time to consider public transportation. In fact, more and more people are doing just that. Ridership numbers are higher than they’ve been sine the 1950s.
Penny and Phil spoke with Art Leahy, who is the CEO at the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, about ridership and the conference:
The American Public Transportation Association is in the Nation’s Capital to highlight the need for increased investment in public transportation. Americans are riding public transit in record numbers. This strong demand shows it provides a vital connection for people from all walks of life. A predictable, long-term Federal commitment to our public transportation infrastructure will create jobs and boost economic development in our communities and our country
