9/4/2020 - Off the Rails: Connecticut’s Post-COVID Transportation Future on October 6, 2020

On Tuesday, October 6, 2020 from 2-3pm, the Southbury Library will be hosting a Zoom lecture on Connecticut’s post-COVID transportation future presented by Jim Cameron.

Long-time commuter advocate and newspaper commentator Jim Cameron offers a lively presentation and Q&A on Connecticut’s transportation crisis:

  • Will riders ever return to Metro-North?
  • Who will pay to keep the trains running?
  • Where will money be found for our highways?
  • How will new residential / workplace trends affect CT’s economy?

Cameron explores the options in an engaging, thought-provoking workshop with plenty of time to hear your ideas and answer your questions. Cameron has been called “the transportation guru” having spent over 25 years working and reporting on the issue.

A former NBC News anchor, Jim Cameron is a recipient of the George Foster Peabody Award. A Connecticut resident for over 25 years, he served on the Metro-North Commuter Council and authors a weekly newspaper column, “Getting There” which runs in the Hearst daily and weekly newspapers. His first book “Off The Record: Confessions of a Media Consultant” was published on June 1, 2020.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, these meetings are free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Space is limited and registration is required. Please visit the link below or call 203-262-0626 ext. 130 to register.
