Cocktails and Converstation CT's Transportation Crisis: Taxes, Tolls and CDOT Cuts. Jim Cameron, noted commuter advocate and author of the twice-monthly newspaper column/blog Getting There Mr. Cameron was a member of the CT Rail Commuter Council for 19 years. He is the founder of a new advocacy effort: CommuterActionGroup   Transportation is a major problem in CT and it seems to be getting worse. The Special Transportation Fund (STF) which pays for our roads and rails has been running out of money. By next year it will be in deficit. In January, the Governor announced fare hikes, rail service cuts and a freeze on transportation projects. Highway tolls are again being discussed. What does this mean for residents who drive CT highways or ride CT trains? Come and learn what is going on as well as how to make your opinion on these issues count.
