Inauguration Options: Car Free or Big Screen TV
The more I hear about the transportation planning for Jan. 20, the more I think that those are the basic options for people who want to feel part of the inauguration.
As we write about what the planners are saying, we may scare a lot of you away from the mall, and I'm not anxious to do that. This will be a once in a lifetime event for many people. On the other hand, I'm worried that thousands will be disappointed. They will find themselves too far back on the mall for the swearing in or too far back from Pennsylvania Avenue to see anything.
Very few transportation plans for the day are set. But more and more of us involved in conveying inauguration transportation information are focusing on transit and walking -- with a growing emphasis on the walking.
Here's a helpful new source of information, with an emphasis on going car free: CommuterPage.com has launched an inauguration page that has plenty of guidance and good links, and will be updated as Jan. 20 approaches.
