Mobilizing the Region (MTR) is the official blog of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, a 501 (c)(3) advocacy organization dedicated to creating a more sustainable, balanced, and equitable transportation network in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
MTR was born as a weekly e-mail and fax bulletin in 1994. It was tirelessly sent to elected and agency officials, advocates, members of the press, and concerned citizens until November 2007; there were 567 issues in total.
In 2007, MTR evolved into the blog you are reading right now. We still send a weekly e-mail “digest,” which compiles most of the week’s blog posts. The fax bulletin, however, has been retired.
For the most part, we do not moderate comments as long as they are not off-topic or abusive. These comments will be deleted at our discretion, and we will also edit out profanity. Overly long comments may also be edited, since they are unlikely to be read and dissuade others from continuing the discussion.
If your comment doesn’t show up, it may be because it has multiple links and is being held in a moderation queue, or because it’s been erroneously caught by a spam filter. An admin will approve your comment.
