TCN November Fundraiser Nears Its End

Thank you for your generous support of the Transportation Communications Newsletter.  Did you know this is issue 3,897 of the TCN?  Hard to believe it's been nearly 14 and a half years since I started.  Hopefully, it will continue for years to come.  There have been a lot of changes in transportation communications since 1998 and I've tried to keep you up-to-date on the latest news.  Coming soon a new feature will be part of the TCN.  Watch early next month for its introduction.  In the meantime, if you'd like to support the TCN, please scroll down for information on how you can contribute.
