“Transportation is an economic issue. The transportation decisions we make today can pay off enormously in the long run, increasing productivity and economic growth in the region as well as adding to the quality of people's lives."
Chairman Bulova has spent decades solving transportation problems in Fairfax County. Chairman Bulova was instrumental in bringing the cost of the second phase of the Silver Line down, preventing this critical project from falling victim to the Great Recession.
She currently serves on the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority, the regional body responsible for ensuring a functioning, regional transportation network. The NVTA in 2014 will begin to invest new revenue from the state as a result of landmark legislation passed by the General Assembly in 2013. She has also served as chair of the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission and is a founder of the Virginia Railway Express commuter rail system.
Chairman Bulova is committed to continuing her efforts to make sure Fairfax County residents spend less time commuting to work and more time with their families and at their jobs. A tireless advocate of mass transit and transit-oriented development, Chairman Bulova understands it takes more than just more lane miles to reduce congestion.
