The Transit Coalition Community Engagement Director Nicholas Ventrone traveled in and out of the Colorado Plateau region and surrounding states and gathered useful information on how these western states are addressing present-day transportation, economic and environmental issues. The Coalition saw in action how a rapid transit system was established in Zion National Park to eliminate–that’s right–eliminate traffic and parking problems within the park. How about express bypass lanes along the major thoroughfares near Salt Lake City? How is the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System near the California-Nevada state border faring? Would any of these solutions work in Southern California? Stay tuned for more information as the Transit Coalition places the information gathered into perspective.
