“Whether it’s adding 5 more minutes to drive through traffic to town, concern over our carbon footprint, or despair over our foreign policy in the Middle East, I see transportation at the root. About 6 years ago, after serving on lots of transportation committees for the schools and the town, I decided to see things from the provider’s side. I earned my commercial drivers license and served as a substitute driver for about 3 years for New Hampshire and Vermont’s stellar transit system: Advance Transit. — Patricia Higgins”
We want to see your photos of anything transportation-related: Your neighborhood bike trail, the train you take to work, an HOV lane, the new streetcar in your community, the rapid-bus line. Here’s what you can do:
Join Transportation for America’s Flickr group and add your photos there. Please note that adding photos to the T4 group assumes permission for us to use them on our website (always with attribution!) Please only submit photos with the Creative Commons license. Please don’t use the “All Rights Reserved” copyright. Email us if you have questions about CC licenses.
Email your photos to email@example.com. Please only send us photos that belong to you, and note that by sending us photos, you give us permission to post them on our website (with attribution) at www.t4america.org.
We’ll feature your photos in several places on the web site and in our newsletter. For example, read this story and look at the accompanying photos that Dr. Scott Crawford of Jackson, Mississippi submitted. Jackson transit service is facing cuts, and Dr. Crawford sent us a story about the sorry transportation facilities for the disabled, along with a great — yet sad — series of photos. Or read this little snippet at right from Patricia Higgins, who started driving a bus in her community.
