Public Transit: Bigger than Google

At the recent Mineta Transportation Institute’s Finance Policy Summit, APTA President & CEO Michael Melaniphy said that APTA’s recommendations for a new surface transportation bill would lead to 1.1 million jobs created or maintained because of increased productivity, job access, and connectivity. The APTA plan “would spark $66 billion in annual business sales—more than the annual retained earnings of Google,” Melaniphy said during a panel presentation. Melaniphy, far left, and other members of the institute’s Board of Trustees, including Founder Norman Mineta, fifth from right, retired DOT secretary, and Executive Director Rod Diridon, center, met with summit keynote, FTA Deputy Administrator Therese McMillan, sixth from right.
