Transit officials from region see Paris on toll payers' dime
Toll payers in the Philadelphia region paid more than $50,000 to send 15 transportation officials to Paris for this week's International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association meeting.
The convention, which ended Wednesday at Le Meridien Montparnasse hotel, was an annual gathering of more than 500 representatives of toll-financed transportation agencies.
International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association? That sounds like the kind of conference I would get stuck going to....
Except it would be in Newark.
