Transportation Communications Newsletter

Friday, October 23, 2015 – ISSN 1529-1057

Share the TCN with a Colleague

There is no ad budget for the TCN. The only way it grows is by those who already receive it sharing it with others. Through that method the subscriber list has grown to over 8,000. My guess is that there are many others working in the transportation field who would find the TCN useful. So, why not share the TCN with a co-worker, friend or student? You can't beat the subscription rate (FREE) and, I hope, the news is invaluable. To subscribe, just send me a note at Thanks!
