Friday Bonus
Today's Friday Bonus comes from 1993. Back then I was the operations manager at TRANSCOM, a coalition of transportation agencies in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. Getting ready for one of the busiest travel days of the year, Good Morning America came by to do some live broadcasts. Here was what was state-of-the-art technology in the early '90s.

Upcoming Events
University Transportation Centers Spotlight Conference – November 4-5 – Washington, DC
