"Fast Lane": Secretary Mary Peters' blog on transportation innovation

Since April 2008 the Department of Transportation has a new blog: the Fast Lane, the official blog of the U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters.

In the initial post "Welcome to the Fast Lane!" Secretary Peters talked about the purpose of the blog: as a tool that will allow her "and others here at the Department [of Transportation] to speak with you and engage in an earnest conversation about our nation's transportation system".

 "I want the Fast Lane to be a true on-line community", Secretary Peters wrote "and I encourage you to submit your comments and thoughts.  After all, if I'm going to insist on twenty-first century solutions for our transportation system, I better communicate in a twenty-first century way!"

Contributors include Secretary Peters, Deputy Secretary Thomas Barrett, administrators from the DOT operating agencies, and other senior officials. In addition, the site welcomes guest bloggers from government, industry, and the transportation community. DOT also uses the blog for breaking news and announcements. The blog also features photos and links to DOT Agencies.

You can subscribe to the blog via RSS or email.
