Federal Highway Fund

Train Rider was off today.

It is nice to have a holiday, but short weeks tend to be brutally long for me. They go by in a flash, but I seem to have so much work to do - five days moved into four. I love that the days go by fast, but wow!!

The New York Times reported today that the Federal High Fund is about to run out of money. This could cause road and bridge construction projects around the country to be halted. More of the same. No money causes alarms at the state level.

Progressive Railroading reported that the MBTA was not alone in the increase in the number of monthly passengers. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority carried more than 14 million passengers on its rail, bus and paratransit services, while the Chicago Transit Authority saw a 9.5% year-over-year gain in August 2008.
