After 19 years, I have resigned from the CT Commuter Rail Council. But I can promise you I am not quitting my advocacy for my fellow commuters or the writing of this column. And I have an even better idea of how commuters can be heard.
The old Commuter Council accomplished many things since its founding in 1985, including the ordering of the new M8 cars. The Council also fought for Quiet Cars, the Passenger Bill of Rights, expanded parking at rail stations, changes in the expiration date on tickets and ticket refunds when service was cancelled.
