On Track

One of the last-minute amendments to the stimulus package passed in the House last night was an additional $3 billion on top of the $10 billion already allocated for mass transit.

This brings the infrastructure portion of the stimulus a large step closer to the level of investment that has a genuine chance of expanding the nation’s green transportation options. Amtrak, Metro, and subway riders, rejoice.

Think any of it will get down here to Miami so they can actually finish the Metrorail?
