Flu trumps trains

My wife and I have been very ill - it's been all we've been able to do to keep our non-sick bouncing-off-the-walls 4 year old reasonably well fed and taken care of. Today's the first day I'm going to try to do more than trivial work since Thursday - so the blogging has to take a very distant back seat. Quick summary:

I did go to the TWG last Monday (not yesterday's, though) and had a meeting with a councilmember afterwards. More cause for pessimism than optimism. I have a self-directed work item to bring back to them which I'll probably post here as well in the next few days.

Allen leaves DART for position with Austin's CapMetro

Doug Allen (pictured), who has been employed by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) since 1984, this week was tabbed to become the new executive vice president and chief development officer for Capital Metro Transit in Austin.

Allen began his career with DART as a senior rail planner, which will serve him well as CapMetro plans the opening of its first passenger rail line by the end of the fall. He has since held the positions of manager of system planning, assistant vice president of planning, vice president of planning and development and his most current position of executive vice president, program development.

Allen has more than 20 years experience in transportation planning and development. He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Northern Iowa and a master's degree from the University of Iowa.
