The Association for Commuter Transportation congratulates Elaine Chao on her confirmation as Secretary of Transportation for US DOT. Secretary Chao brings with her years of federal government experience and leadership as former Secretary of Labor under President George W. Bush and Deputy Secretary of Transportation under President George H.W. Bush.
“We congratulate Secretary Chao and look forward to working with her and the US DOT to improve the commutes of working Americans,” said ACT Executive Director, David Straus. “We have critical transportation needs that must be met with increased investments to support and expand transportation options. We must look to get more out of our existing transportation system by leveraging technology, employers, and new practices to improve our transportation system.”
