We’ll Need to Finance the CT Transportation Fund, It’ll Be Painful, But Candidates Avoid Discussing It
When it comes to COVID’s impact on transportation in our state, we are in the eye of the hurricane.

We kid ourselves if we think the winds have passed. The worst is yet to come. Commuters who’ve returned to the rails tell me ridership is slowly coming back but many still fear for their safety on mass transit, and with good reason.
