Transportation Communications Newsletter

Thursday, June 8, 2017 - Cranford, New Jersey

TCN Fundraiser Returns

Hard to believe it’s been a year since the last TCN fundraiser, but once again I would like to ask for your support of this daily update of transportation news. Later this month the TCN will mark its 19th year! What began as an informal discussion group has grown to be one of the oldest transportation e-newsletters in the world. At the start, the updates were gathered and sent via an AOL dial-up account. Most subscribers had CompuServe, Hotmail and AOL email addresses. Google wouldn’t be founded for another couple of months. You can make a contribution via PayPal or you may send a check to the address at the bottom of the newsletter. Thank you!
