A report on the ProJo blog states that Governor Chafee plans to, “take an active role in the state’s transit system.”
[Stephen R.] Hourahan [senior adviser to the governor] said that the governor plans to focus on transit, saying that “This is something that Linc has been focused on for years.”
“We do take this stuff very seriously,” he said.
Bravo! I’m glad he’s getting involved. Here’s what I envision – street car lines that traverse major communities in the cities. Commuter rail that covers all of the urban area.
You know, stuff like that!
