EDITOR'S NOTEBOOK
Another year
for the books
A year-end look at our top stories and what they tell us about
where the industry has been, as well as where it's going.
I
like to take stock at the end of the year, to reflect, to count good
events, but mostly, to use the proverbial review mirror to see certain
things more clearly. Part of this exercise means looking at our internal
data to see what stories grabbed the attention of our readers.
Interestingly, the section of Mass Transit's website to see the biggest traffic
jump was the jobs portal, which saw a 130 percent increase in visits in 2021.
I confess my journalist heart compressed a bit that this stat wasn't occupied
by a breaking news story or feature article, but with ego sufficiently in check,
there was a realization that information sharing is one aspect of our role,
while making connections is another. The transit industry is not immune to
the Great Resignation, and we are grateful the jobs portal serves as a resource
for the industry to find whatever the next opportunity may be.
Rail continued its reign as the top channel on the Mass Transit website.
Rail specific stories also dominated our top 100 story list for the year. These
included Amtrak's unveiling of its new Tier IV locomotive and newly refreshed
passenger cars at Chicago Union Station in June; various high-speed
rail plans and developments; and the return to service of Brightline following
a pandemic-caused hiatus.
Developments in Washington, D.C., also held the attention of readers.
Early in the year, it was coverage of the American Rescue Plan, the final
in a trio of bills to deliver much needed emergency funding to the transit
industry as it continued to cope with the
COVID-19 pandemic. This was followed
throughout the summer and fall with
surface transportation and infrastructure
bill progress and, ultimately, the signing
into law of the Bipartisan Infrastructure
Deal (BID).
Taken as a whole, the news covered
Taken as a whole, the
news covered and
read in 2021 had a
more upbeat thread
connecting it all.
and read in 2021 had a more upbeat
thread connecting it all. The improvements
in ridership, the launch of new mobility
services and the security provided
by the BID is seeing 2021 end on a much
lighter note than this time last year.
We wish you a joyous holiday season
and a happy and safe New Year.
