Public Transportation

"Transportation Means Business," a statewide conference on the need for public transportation is scheduled for April 18th in Montgomery. The event will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., in the capitol city's Embassy Suites Hotel. Featured speakers will include Norman Mineta, former National Secretary of Transportation and Governor Bob Riley. The conference is sponsored by the Alabama Road Builders Association, the Birmingham Regional Chamber of Commerce and others.  Additional information can be found at www.transportationmeansbusiness.org
Nancy Ekberg is representing our League in the planning committee, which includes more than thirty organizations and governmental units. Montgomery’s "Envision 2020" is coordinating the event. The Jefferson County Commission, The Birmingham Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Birmingham City Council via three members (President Carole Smitherman, Carol Reynolds and Valerie Abbott) are sponsors.
Let your representatives on these three governmental/business agencies know you are grateful for their support of this important issue.
