Transportation Communications Newsletter

Friday, December 9, 2016 – Cranford, New Jersey

Bernie's Notes

Thank you for your responses so far to the modified format of the TCN. The comments have been overwhelmingly in favor of the changes (90%) so, for the time being, I'll continue using the embedded links. I hope those who prefer the old style will continue to be readers and that this switch isn't too disruptive.

I hope you've also been enjoying my Transportation Radio interviews. These are a unique way for me to bring you original reporting in an audio format. In addition to seeing the stories in the TCN, you can also subscribe via iTunes, TuneIn and Stitcher. Listen as you're driving or exercising. You'll find the archive of stories at the above links. As always, please share your comments with me at
