One of the recurring themes of this newsletter is that all the various modes of mobility constitute a single, integrated transportation system serving all residents in all corners of the Commonwealth. Driving, public transportation, passenger and freight rail, air and waterway transportation, bicycling and walking to move people, materials and products from Point A to Point B are all essential pieces of this integrated system.

In that spirit, we take the opportunity this week to help our friends at the Rail Passengers Association promote their Mid-Atlantic Northern Region meeting, which will be Saturday, March 19, in Harrisburg. The region includes Delaware and New Jersey, as well as Pennsylvania.

PennDOT Deputy Secretary Jennie Granger will be the featured speaker, and there will also be a presentation by Manny DeMutis, who will discuss a project to bring passenger rail to Phoenixville, PA.

The event is scheduled from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. and includes a hot buffet lunch. The location is train and bus-passenger friendly.
