Apparently Biden is looking hard at Mayor Pete for the Secty of Transportation Role. Skimming through his wikipedia page (which is no doubt completely accurate) I see this extensive background on transportation issues:
"Beginning in August 2018, Buttigieg promoted the idea of moving the city's South Shore Line station
from South Bend International Airport
to the city's downtown.
He made it a goal to have the city complete this project by 2025.
Buttigieg's earlier budgets had allotted funding to the existing South Shore Relocation project,
which would have moved the station to a different end of the South Bend International Airport.
Buttigieg's new push for a downtown station engendered suggestions of other possible locations. Buttigieg ordered a study of five location options, including his personally preferred downtown option, as well as two that would keep the station at the airport.
Of the five, the downtown location was found to be the priciest, but also the one with the greatest potential economic impact.
In December 2018, an engineering study was commissioned to further examine the cost of a downtown station.
In 2019, South Bend launched Commuters Trust, a new transportation benefit program
created in collaboration with local employers and transportation providers (including South Bend TRANSPO
) and made possible by a $1 million three-year grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies
So he suggested moving a commuter rail station AND created a pilot commuter benefits program for a city of 100,000 people. Sounds like the right person for the job.
