Continuing Transportation Education for Doctor Transit
Dr. Transit writes very authoritatively but recognizes (usually) that there is a lot more that he doesn't know than he does know. Like the regular medical profession, and most of the licensed professions that have continuing education requirements, Dr. Transit is committed to earning CTEs, to ensure the transportation agenda moves forward, rather than backward.
So emails, blog comments, articles, conferences, etc., become grist for the mill in earning those CTEs.
And all the aspects of transit and getting a handle on it, feels like a much longer than one hour episode of ER.
