Transportation Priorities

Posted Tuesday, June 17, 2008

$4-a-gallon gasoline -- and the prospect of $5 a gallon -- is giving lots of people new perspectives on transportation, including those responsible for Ohio's transportation system. The Ohio Department of Transportation is holding public hearings to help set those priorities for the 21st century. On the Sound of Ideas, we'll help them out with a public hearing of our own. Interested in more rail? Better bus service? And how should the state pay for it? Contribute your ideas on The Sound of Ideas this morning at 9:00. Check out the ODOT link for more information about this afternoon's Cleveland meeting of the 21st Century Transportation Priorities Task Force.
