Transportation Communications Newsletter

Thursday, December 8, 2016 – Cranford, New Jersey

Bernie's Notes
I'm trying something a little different with today's edition and I'd like your feedback on what you think of it.

I'm embedding the links for the articles with the name of the source of the story. On the plus side it makes the newsletter more streamlined, but I'm more concerned about readability. One hallmark of the TCN is that it's easy to scan and read the stories you find interesting. I've stayed away from photos and other "extras" that would make the TCN slower to load and more cluttered.

Please let me know what you think. Is it better, worse or it doesn't make a difference? Please drop me a note at and let me know how you're reading the TCN (on a desktop, phone, etc.) and how it comes to you (Gmail, Outlook, etc.). Thanks!
