Long-time commuter advocate and newspaper commentator Jim Cameron offers a lively presentation about Connecticut’s transportation future: Will riders ever return to commuter rail? Who will pay to keep the trains running when Federal money is gone? Where will money be found to repair the highways? How will new residential/workplace trends affect Connecticut’s economy? Cameron explores the options in an engaging, thought-provoking talk followed by a Q&A session.
