TCN Celebrates 19th Anniversary - A Short History

Yesterday marked 19 years since the first message went out on the transport-communications list. The list was originally hosted by FindMail, which was then bought by eGroups and then was purchased by Yahoo! Groups. Ironically, yesterday also marked the end of Yahoo! as an independent company with its acquisition by Verizon.

I mention this history because June is also the fundraising month for the TCN. Over the years the TCN has dependably brought you news every weekday. I expanded by “media empire” two years ago with the creation of Transportation Radio, which brings you audio interviews with transportation leaders from around the world. My latest, with Virginia Transportation Secretary Aubrey Layne, was recorded today and can be found below.

You can support the TCN and Transportation Radio with a contribution via PayPay or Patreon. You can even go retro and mail a check to the address at the bottom of the newsletter. Thank you!
