“There’s a proposal that’s on the table. That’s really something we should be able to address, I think, very, very quickly,” Eno Center President and CEO Robert Puentes said. “We’d have enormous transformations. And probably the biggest change we’ve seen in aviation in a generation.”
Robert Puentes, who heads the non-profit Eno Center for Transportation, says that Metro was designed for another kind of city, where jobs and workers were located in the center. But as the city changes, and more jobs and people are located farther out, the transport system has to change too.
During a recent conference in Washington, D.C., Paul Lewis, vice-president of policy and finance at the Eno Center for Transportation, talked about how local and regional governments can lead the way in this mobility revolution. What’s needed, he said, are policies “that both protect public safety and bring some accountability to this rapidly changing environment while still enabling the technology to bring the benefits.”
The Eno Center’s vice president of policy and finance at the Eno Center for Transportation Paul Lewis said Thursday that all discussions about infrastructure investment programs should be focused on “what those programs are hoping to achieve,” and that technology can be considered as a way to get to those program goals.
"If you're moving big heavy stuff and you're moving it around the world, it's hard to beat the efficiency of these large ships,” said Robert Puentes, president of the Eno Center for Transportation in Washington, D.C .
Of the many things Donald Trump has planned for his presidency, Democrats support at least one—in principle, if not specifics. It’s way past time to fix America’s crumbling infrastructure. Tuesday, Trump named the woman for the job, nominating Elaine Chao as Secretary of Transportation.
Several U.S. communities yesterday approved a variety of sweeping passenger-rail initiatives, including a $120 billion transit plan in Los Angeles County. L.A. County's Measure M received more than the two-thirds vote required to pass, according to radio station 89.3 KPCC.
Among the stories overshadowed by the stunning presidential election of Republican Donald Trump were dozens of local ballot measures that voters approved to fund public transit projects around the country.
There may be a silver lining (a gold lining may be more appropriate) to Trump's ascent into the White House. Trump likes building things, from skyscrapers to Mexican walls, and while anything out of the president elect's mouth shouldn't be taken as close to truth, he did campaign on infrastructure spending.
Denver’s Regional Transportation District (RTD) agency knew it had to do something different to win approval of a funding boost, after voters nearly 20 years ago soundly rejected the “Guide the Ride” ballot initiative that would have raised sales taxes for developing light rail and other public transit options.
A $1 trillion, 10-year infrastructure renewal plan proposed Thursday by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign relies on tax credits to attract private investments in roads, bridges, seaports, and airports.
