DOT Secretary Peters Hits Info Superhighway, Launches Blog

Department of Transportation Secretary Mary E. Peters has launched Fast Lane, the new DOT blog at http://fastlane.dot.gov, which the department describes as an on-line community for all those interested in the nation's transportation system and its future. Fast Lane contributors will include Peters, Deputy Secretary Thomas Barrett, administrators from the DOT operating agencies, and other senior officials. In addition, the site will welcome guest bloggers from government, industry, and the transportation community. DOT also will use the blog to break news and make announcements.

"Fast Lane will allow me and others here at the Department to speak directly with interested citizens, members of the transportation community and the blogosphere to engage in an earnest conversation about our nation's transportation future," Peters said. "I have made 21st century solutions a priority for our transportation system, and now I'm thrilled to be using a 21st century communications tool to reach Americans in a whole new way."

Fast Lane is an open forum, and visitors are encouraged to submit comments, contribute ideas, and bring to DOT's attention innovative and exciting transportation activities in their communities. All comments will be reviewed before inclusion, and a representative sample will be posted to the site, the department says.
