News bits: FTA Deputy Administrator shares thoughts on Dallas-area transit

Federal Transportation Administration Deputy Administrator Therese McMillan attended a local conference and toured the new DFW Airport Station last week and now has shared her thoughts on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Fast Lane blog.

So, if a conference I attended last week called “Texans Do Use Transit” seems like a pipe dream, it’s not. Texans do use transit. It’s a fact–known and measurable. And in addition to using transit to get to jobs, medical services and other destinations, North Texas is using its investment in transit to boost economic growth. Texans don’t just use transit, they thrive on it.

Click below to see the rest of McMillan’s comments, including her thoughts on the recent economic development studies.
