Welcome to the second edition of DigitalCT -- The Infrastructure of Coordination. When you read the articles in this magazine, you'll see it's all about how to coordinate transportation with the rest of what goes on in our communities: infrastructure, planning, service delivery and -- most of all -- with seeing that people can get to the places they need to go.

To ease our readers in the transition to Community Transportation magazine's new digital format, we have developed a troubleshooting tips for downloading the magazine, as well as a guide to using the new publication once it is downloaded.
