Earlier this month, we were pleased to welcome to the Coalition Susan Carty, president of the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania.

Representing more than 1,800 members in 23 counties, the League promotes energy-efficient and environmentally sound transportation systems that afford access to housing and jobs, relieve congestion and enhance the quality of life in communities of all sizes.

To that end, Susan has written to PennDOT Secretary Richards to express the League’s support for increasing Amtrak service between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, something our western PA friends have been pushing for some time. Increasing service on that route will take more vehicles off the Turnpike, attract tourism and enhance the quality of life in the communities along the route.

We welcome the League’s involvement as we continue our quest for an adequately funded, multimodal transportation system.

Be of Good Cheer,
— The Wolff
