While Casey Dutmer has lived without sight since birth, his perspective on public transportation has never been about disabled community alone. In his opinion, it’s for everyone.

“Good public transportation means good economic growth and development.”

Casey has studied transportation systems all around the country. The consistency between all of them is a concentration of business and housing to create complete neighborhoods. Dutmer passionately believes we should have the best public transportation to attract opportunities like tourism, sporting events, and grow business.
